I will be running a 3 week Introduction to West African Drumming course in Sunderland in November and December.
The dates are 30 November, 7 and 14 December
The venue is
The Bunker CIC
29 Stockton Rd
Tel: 0191 5671777
Sessions will run 6-8pm. Please arrive a little earlier if possible to help with set up. I will bring all the drums and associated kit.
We will be playing bass drums – known collectively as dunun – which are played with sticks and accompanied with a bell pattern as well as the more widely known djembe (played with the hands).
We will learn 1-2 traditional rhythm pieces which will enable everyone to get involved and play and provide a challenge for players of all levels from complete beginner to professional percussionist.
Sessions are run through WEA (Workers Education Association) and these 3 session are FREE!!!
