Olivier Ombredane: Clarissimo - Vol.1
Clarissimo - Vol.1
Colorissaxo, latin' clarinet ballad' is a collection of original compositions of great rhythmic variety based on a wide array of traditional and popular Latin-American and Caribbean music. Whether originating from the altiplano (Peruvian Huayno, Bolivian Takirari), from the Pacific or the Atlantic coast (Columbian Cumbla, Argentinian Milonga) or from the Caribbean islands (Cuban Bolero, Jamaican Reggae), these compositions with their swaying rhythms are of great pedagogical interest for student and teacher alike.
In accordance with traditional oral transmission practice, we invite teachers and students to make use of the accompanying cd in order to memorize the music through actice listening, singing etc.
Playing along with the playback soundtrack, with / without the written material, will help control and improve perfect sync. Moreover, singing their part and simultaneously clapping the specific rhythms of the pieces, students have an opportunity to develop their musical abilities beyond mere instrumental technique. Further practice may include stomping the beat as well. The (shorter) first two pieces are more particulary intended for beginners (beginning of Cycle 1).
N.B.: The 2 nd part, is more complex and may be performed by a more advanced student or by the teacher. It is also often evocative of the playback rhythm, thus enabling the teacher to accompany the upper voice (with or without playback) and express the rhythmic specificity of the piece.
Last but not least, our dearest wish is to have you discover and enjoy a particular type of music that is still too little known despite being accessible to all!
