St. Louis, MO, USA - October 10 – WBGO 88.3 FM Presents "How Rhythms are Applied in All Forms of Music" featuring Norman Hedman’s Tropique on Saturday, October 13, 2007 from 12:30 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at The Newark Museum in Newark, New Jersey.

Interactive Workshop

The afternoon will focus on 6/8 rhythms (Afro / Abaqua) and how Norman applies those rhythms to various commercial styles of music (ie. jazz, hip hop, and R&B). Hedman plans to highlight Hispanic Heritage Month.  In addition, he will trace his African roots with respect to the music and show how it influenced him, while demonstrating percussive instruments and how he modifies them for unique sounds. A performance by Tropique wraps-up this fun-filled afternoon.

About Norman Hedman

New and inventive concepts, clean, tight lines and original compositions are the irresistible hallmark of this bonafide hit maker's success. If you migrate to more than just one musical genre, you will love Norman Hedman's number one recordings. Formed in 1994, Tropique maintains the typical rhythmic structure of Latin music, but presents it with R&B at the core. With albums characterized as Latin Jazz, World and Latin Soul, this Jamaican-born master conguero has a passion for percussion.  Visit and 8 Bar Artist Management to learn more.
