If you haven’t had the pleasure of studying with Sayon Camara, you are in for a treat. He will take you places in your drumming you didn’t know existed and he will do it with a humble, open heart and infinite joy. Get a direct West African experience. You’ll never be the same again!

Sayon has been teaching workshops for almost a decade in the US, Guinea and Japan to students from all over the world. He has the ability to communicate the music to others, regardless of the language they speak and the size of the group.

Past workshops have ranged in length from one day to one month and can be held in your city or country, or in Guinea.

If you would like to arrange a workshop in your area, please contact Sayon for details.

Upcoming 2015 Workshops…


African Culture: Village Music, Song and Dance from Guinea
Saturday June 20, 2015
4:30 – 6:00 pm
Usher in summer with Sayon in this unique class that brings the major art forms of his culture together.  Journey to an African village with Sayon Camara of Guinea and his wife Lev in a workshop that engages participants in the drumming, music, song, story, traditional language and dance from the place where Sayon delighted in his childhood and served as djembefola (one who plays the djembe drum). All ages and skill levels welcome from beginner to advanced. No experience necessary. We will work at the level of those in the group. Plan to experience joy and the music and dance traditions of a very different culture. Village music, song and dance is simple and Sayon is a patient and skillful teacher.
This is under Specialty Classes.
