Aldo Mazza, KoSA Founder and Artistic Director of Koza Music has provided top level drum and percussion workshops, camps, and festivals around the world.
Aldo states "Essentially, we know that music is the only universal language. It transcends all social, economic, cultural and political boundaries. Within every KoSA project, this is our core philosophy that with the sharing of music, the world works better, much better. Our camp this year is the seventeenth and it is being held from July 24-29 at Castleton State College in Vermont and it is known as The World's Greatest Drum Camp.
"Keeping up with the times, KoSA is very pleased to announce Live Video Streaming from KoSA 17 on Drum Channel. We are extremely grateful to Drum Channel for providing this link to our world renowned annual event. This will allow those who have been to KoSA to catch up with this year's performances, and for those around the world who may be unfamiliar with the KoSA experience, this live stream offers a tiny slice of the once-in-a-lifetime performances and 24/7 excitement a KoSA event offers."
We have a great closing presentation by Montreal's Corky Laing known for his career in percussion including the ground breaking group, MOUNTAIN. We also will have Mel Shaw, Juno award winning producer and the Founding President of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and the Founding President of Canada's Recording Legacy.
Shaw will be appearing live via our large stage screen from Nashville. He will be announcing that his MSMP rep in New York and a Kosa representative, Allan Molnar, will be selecting a percussion player to be a participant in recording a track for the New York edition of Dream Singer, The Musical. Allan Molnar will announce that KoSA will be recording a song called "When You Ride a Dream" in honour of the Olympics for Shaw's MSMP digital recordings.
