Bàtábádé Technique

The codification and development of Bàtábádé technique focuses on the analysis of Bátá drumming and dancing and their documentation in music staff notation, Labanotation, text, and electronic forms. The aim of the project is to make African dance, particularly Bàté and Bàtábádé, accessible to a wider audience.
