In June 2010 Readipop ran some some continual professional development sessions for selected music leaders as part of Dhoom Dhamaka, Reading’s annual celebration of Asian arts. Working with Bindi Sagoo and Johnny Kalsi the sessions focussed on Indian percussion, the participants got to try their hand at Tabla, Dhol and Dholak.
The second part of the Dhoom Dhamaka project was to run some open Dhol workshops, this lead to a musical collaboration between Beatroots and The Dhol Foundation, with the piece created was performed at Forbury gardens band stand. The final stage of this project will be for Readipop’s music leaders to deliver work with some local young people.
