BODY PERCUSSION AND PERCUSSION WORKSHOP WITH ROBERTO CASTILLO LONDON 2009. 13th March at Bolivar Hall
NOTTAS aims at creating projects encompassing, mainly, World and Jazz music plus many other art forms including film, dance, theatre, painting... It also provides services in music promotions to individual artists and bands with incredible musical skills and personal history, most of them unsigned and needing a little bit more help on bookings, selling of CDs and exposing their work live, which Nottas does through her events done at various places in London. These events have taken place at Favela Chic, Troubadour, Vibe Live and Le QuecumBar, under the name of ‘Absinthe’, ‘Pa’GoZA’, and ‘I Got Rhythm’.
In addition, we are very glad to announce that, from 2009 onwards, Nottas wants and will, organize music workshops of various traditions for those who want to improve and develop their skills and knowledge on that particular music culture. These will include, to start with, Cuban son and rumba and Arabic Classical and folk music, with emphasis on learning how to play the percussion instruments, rhythm patterns and their roles. For this, we will bring to you some of the best teachers of these traditions in town! :)

NOTTAS was created by Elizabeth Nott, an Italian-English Venezuelan born girl who, after some years 'flirting' around all kinds of music cultures and musical instruments decided to study Ethnomusicology at SOAS, University of London, and specialized on Arabic music and percussion on her last two years of her BA. She has continued pursuing a career as percussionist, music teacher, events organiser and anything that can fulfill her artistic ambitions.
Through Nottas, Elizabeth has had the opportunity to bringing fantastic acts to her shows around London as you can see further bellow these lines
From March 2008 Ezhaan has been Nottas resident DJ and an amazing friend who has also helped out in the promotions and, sometimes, as a good councillor ;)
Poster design collaborations have included Ed Stilman (for Absynth 17th June 2007 and Absynth 11Nov 2007) and Victoria Scott and Artur Bilinski (for I Got Rhythm, Sept 2007)
