Usher in Summer with Sayon! June 20

A unique class that brings the art forms of Sayon’s 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. 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.

Pre-register at:

This is under the second Specialty Classes category.
