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.

Level 1 – No experience necessary. This workshop will introduce participants to the key patterns of West African rhythms and why they are played. They will explore the different sounds of the djembe drum and how to play together as a group.

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

Time – 6.45 – 8pm Cost – 90 euro.

Max 12 participants, minimum 8.
