Everyone at Zack’s Place has an excellent time when Sayon shows up. People start to smile and even laugh, not to mention putting out some wild rhythms. What a gift. The photo is from his visit there last month.

Don’t worry. You can’t miss it! If you do, you can ask us to show you where it is.
Sayon will be at the Little Theatre in Woodstock, Vermont on Friday March 18, doing a mini performance during the contra dance break. Be sure to stop by to get a taste of some wonderful, exuberant Guinean drumming.
There is no other like Sayon Camara! A djembefola as straight and true as the clear sounds he produces on the djembe drum, his teaching and performances will give you the music of his people, directly from the heart of Guinea, West Africa, leaving you with the richness of his traditional culture, inner joy and a sense of well being.
