Let’s give Sayon a great send off to his home in Guinea with this final 2015 workshop! This is a wonderful chance for students from local classes and workshops around New England to play together, growing community and family while sharpening your Malinke drumming skills!
Catch him in Wiscasset (register here) on Friday and Saturday September 25 and 26.
in Hallowell in the Augusta area (register by calling 802 779 4914 or emailing Sayon) on Sunday September 27.
Attend all three days for a complete Sayon experience! It will blow you away and might even take your drumming to the next level and your being to a more joyous place! Good for your well being.
