What is Body Music? Before people were hollowing logs and slapping rocks, they were using their bodies to stomp, clap, sing, snap and grunt their musical ideas. There are many traditional Body Musics in the world, from African-American Hambone and Flamenco Palmas to Sumatran Saman and Ethiopian Armpit music. Keith Terry has developed a contemporary style of Body Music based on his training as a Jazz drummer, as well as his years of intensive study and collaboration with world rhythmic systems.
