Mahendra Patel of Kadence Music discusses his free online hand drumming workshops, running every weekday during the lockdown.

While our building remains closed to the public during the current lockdown, we’ll be using our Saturdays not to talk about the work the Belgrade is doing, but to highlight some of the other exciting things happening across Coventry and Warwickshire.

Every weekend, we’ll share a selection of good news stories and projects and events to look out for on our social media platforms, and we’ll also dedicate a blog post to one of the projects that’s got us most excited.

This week, we spoke to Mahendra Patel of Kadence Music about the FREE online hand-drumming workshops he is currently running every weekday. Having previously worked with Mahendra on live events and shows at the Belgrade Theatre, we got in touch to ask him a few questions about what he’s been up to during the lockdown – here’s what he had to say.
