Medusa Drums
This is an afternoon you will not want to miss whether you are a complete novice or an experienced drummer! Helen Bond’s workshops provide a unique and energizing opportunity to experience the joy and power of community drumming. Her teaching style allows each person to progress steadily in skill and experience and grasp the melodies and rhythms of West African music. Learn the culture behind the African Drums as well as learning a full rhythm and song during this workshop. Each participant will have an opportunity to use two different types of drums (provided for this event) and learn the joy and healing power of traditional West African hand drumming and songs.

Helen Bond is a dynamic percussionist, teacher and storyteller who has found music to be an inspiration and source of strength and resiliency since her childhood. For the last 12 years, Helen has traveled regularly to Guinea, West Africa to study the intricate musical traditions and culture of the Malinke people, whose ancestors created the djembe and dunun drums centuries ago. In 2006, Helen began bringing Guinean musicians and teachers to the United States and Canada for workshops and master classes. In addition to touring annually, she teaches classes at retreats, local schools, colleges and universities. Through her company, Medusa’s Musical Mysteries, Helen offers classes in Guinean percussion music, drum facilitation, and gives storytelling performances.
