A wonderful opportunity to try out African Drumming with a master drummer from Senegal.
Led by Ansoumana ‘Vieux’ Bakayoko, a ‘djembefola’ (djembe player) from West Africa, each workshop introduces the art of playing the djembe drum to a traditional African rhythm. From mixed Malian and Guinean heritage, Vieux spent his childhood in Senegal before travelling across the Mandeng lands of Mali, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast and back to Senegal learning from the great drum masters of the age.
Vieux is a great teacher, bringing excitement and incredible knowledge to all his classes, workshops and residences. He works with professional musicians, students and school children, always offering honesty, passion and true creativity to everyone he meets. Everyone attending his workshops will leave with a sense of achievement and a big smile.
Workshops last 45 minutes.
