'a unique master of percussive motion.' The San Francisco Chronicle Featuring: Technique Polyrhythms Polymeters Phasing What is Body Music? The Village Voice says: Keith Terry 'claps his hands, rubs his palms, finger-pops, stamps his feet, brushes his soles, slaps his butt and belly, pops his cheek, whomps his chest, skips and slides, sings and babbles and coughs, building his music out of a surprisingly varied register of sounds and clever rhythmic variations.' Using the Oldest Instrument on the Planet - the Human Body (your own) - this Body Music Instructional Video will teach you to clap, slap, snap, and step your way through some very fun and funky rhythmic music. ***Includes Footage of Keith Terry's Body Music in Performance *** '. . . a crossing of cultures, a blurring of boundaries at it's most sensitive, most humanistic, and most magical.'
