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.

If you miss Sayon while he is in Guinea you can always go see him at the Montshire Museum in Norwich…

Yes! Sayon is part of the Making Music exhibit up at the Montshire right now for those who missed the exhibit the first time around. You’ll feel like you’re sitting in class with him! Making Music is a hands-on experience with all kinds of instruments. We learned a lot, had fun and highly recommend it for all ages.

The museum is open daily, 10am to 5pm, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas and is located at One Montshire Road, Norwich VT 05055.
