Music Lesson: Using Bucket Drumming To Review Basic Rhythm
What Is Bucket Drumming?
Bucket drumming, also called street drumming, is a style of music which involves drumming on plastic buckets and other objects to create rhythmic grooves. The most common object used by bucket drummers are five-gallon plastic buckets, but other objects can be used, including glass bottles, pots, and pans.
History Of Bucket Drumming
The exact origins of bucket drumming are unclear. Street musicians have been around for thousands of years and have always selected materials and made instruments from what was available in their immediate surroundings. In our time, plastic buckets are an thing to get and are easy to carry around. Bucket drumming appeared to first take hold in New York City in the 1980's, as you would occasionally find drummers performing informally along city streets and in subway tunnels. Larry Wright, a drummer from the Bronx, is help make bucket drumming become popular.
