After a GREAT wrap on the West coast Sayon is ready to drum with East coast drummers and friends. Maine here he comes! We’ll be drumming on djembes and dounouns, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and adding dance to the Sunday afternoon drumming class of the traditional Kassa rhythm. Get ready for joy!
This June Sayon will be offering TWO West African Drumming & Dance workshops! One on the West Coast (click here for West Coast details/registration) and one on the East Coast (click here for East Coast details/registration). Registration is now open!
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.
This is under the second Specialty Classes category.
