West African Live Drumming and Dance!

Friday, August 9th at 6pm
Artistree, South Pomfret VT

More information and your tickets here!

We’re delighted to offer a joyful participatory West African community evening with Sayon and Lev Camara and Arabalon on Friday August 9! Drum and/or dance, listen, observe! It’s your choice.

Come one, come all. This is your African village. The music and dance are traditional, taught in the village style, making it accessible to all. Young, old, singles, couples, families, groups, experienced or no experience at all. Everyone is welcome.

A 6pm drumming class with Sayon will start the evening, followed at 7pm with dance instruction by Lev to Sayon’s live drumming. For about the last 90 minutes of the evening, Sayon and Arabalon will perform for all who care to watch, listen and/or dance to the beat of their own West African inspired drum!
