The workshops cover proper hand techniques as well as the cultural context of drumming in Mali. We also explore the essential elements that make up an African rhythm, including the break, accompaniments and solo phrases. By the end of the class, students play together as an ensemble. Finally, Sidy demonstrates some of his unique soloing skills.

Students should have their own drum. Instructor can provide if contacted in advance.

Class fee: $15.
