Intensive Drum Workshop with Master Village Drummer Namory Keita
For Intermediate/Advance players - bring your Djembé or Dounoun playing to another level!
Explore the intricate layers of West African traditional ensemble playing with Master Village Drummer Namory Keita and his fabulous drumming community! There are few opportunities to really study the village style West African repertoire and Namory is one of a hand-full of Masters of the style here in the United States ready to share his culture with us. How lucky we are! Namory's joy is infectious and his style and knowledge of the culture is amazing - don't miss this rare opportunity he is providing for his intermediate and advanced students.
The first half will concentrate on the complexities of the Djembé, setting our rhythmic stage for the completion of the ensemble with Dounouns. The second half will be dedicated to developing the dounoun bass lines for the rhythms we learned in the first half along with variations to enrich your playing.
Bring any brain food needed (maybe nuts, water and caffeine!), a recording device, Djembé, sticks and the whole family of Dounouns that you can fit in your car!
