He will take you places in your drumming you didn’t know existed and he will do it with a humble, open heart and infinite joy. Get a direct West African experience. You’ll never be the same again!

Sayon will take those attending the workshop on a rhythmical journey to his beautiful home country of Guinea, connecting participants to the ancient rituals and traditions of the Malinke people. We will experience and learn to play the music of a culture that has existed for thousands of years in a small village at the heart of Guinea. Together, we will explore rhythms, songs and stories from Sayon’s homeland.
