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. 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 and can be arranged to specific needs.

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