Body Music – clapping, snapping, stepping and vocalizing – is music you can see, dance you can hear — likely the oldest music on the planet. Keith Terry, in his 40th year of pioneering contemporary Body Music and producing events in the Bay Area and around the world through his Oakland-based arts non-profit Crosspulse, teams up with Rhythmix for the culmination of a month of BODY MUSIC/East Bay events to present PAL educational assemblies, a BODY MUSIC workshop with Keith Terry, and a live concert featuring a host of Bay Area body music artists. There are many traditional Body Musics in the world, from African-American Hambone and Flamenco Palmas to Sumatran Saman and Ethiopian Armpit music. Since 1978 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. Since 2008 Crosspulse’s International Body Music Festival has given wings to the state of the art, now presenting MiniFests around the world.
