If you haven’t had the pleasure of studying with Sayon Camara, you are in for a treat. 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 has been teaching workshops for almost a decade in the US, Guinea and Japan to students from all over the world. He has the ability to communicate the music to others, regardless of the language they speak and the size of the group. Past workshops have ranged in length from one day to one month and can be held in your city or country, or in Guinea. If you would like to arrange a workshop in your area, please contact Sayon for details. Please check out Workshop Tips below.
What to Bring to All Drum Workshops
A djembe if you have one, water, an audio recorder – we ask that no video recordings be made during workshops, only photos and audio recordings – to practice what you’ve learned later, and whatever else you need to be comfortable. If you don’t have a djembe don’t worry, you can rent at the workshop for a nominal fee. Please let us know you need to rent a djembe when you register, and definitely in advance.
If You Need A Drum For A Workshop
Please let us know well in advance by calling 802 779 4914. We have djembes for rent for $5 per workshop day.
