Your Essential Guide to the Bodhran:
Exploring new musical genres with Argene

Want to give the gift of music for Christmas this year?

Know someone who's keen to learn a new, versatile and fun percussion instrument, or has a Bodhran at home but doesn't yet know how to play it?

This DVD will take you right from how to hold the beater, to making those first few strokes as well as complex rhythms, improvisation and accompanying traditional Irish music, folk, jazz, blues to name a few. This DVD features a traditional Irish music section to play along with, as well as live footage of jam sessions (here in Christchurch!), Irish dancing, and live stage performances by Emeralds & Greenstone (who have recently been nominated for best folk album of the year 2009). This the very first NZ-made Bodhran DVD.

What have people said about this DVD?

"I had a great time learning to find my way around the Bodhrn with this enjoyable DVD. It is relaxed and easy to follow. Especially good for anyone getting to grips with the instrument for the first time."
- Dr Jonathan Le Cocq, Senior Lecturer in Music at University of Canterbury, NZ

"Very professionally produced and you are to be congratulated on [its] quality."
-Rodney Walshe, Honorary Consul General of Ireland
