Description

New 5 week term of African Drumming starting Wednesday 18th September 2019. Come and experience Djembe and Dunun drumming from Guinea and Mali, West Africa.

Rhythm is highly important to life in rural Africa, it breaks up the mundane tasks of the day such as pounding grain and turns it into a rhythmic adventure. All stages of life are accompanied by drumming in certain areas of West Africa. Births, , coming of age, planting, harvesting, marriage…. All have their specific rhythms

Beginners – No experience necessary.. This workshop will introduce participants to the key patterns of West African rhythms and why they are played. We will explore the different sounds of the djembe drum and how to play together as a group. Mainly we will have a lot of fun :)

Drums are provided, but please bring your own if you have one.

Time – 6.45 – 8pm Cost – 65e before August 31st. 75e after

Max 12 participants, minimum 8.
