Sunday, May 16
Instructor: Helen Bond
Social distancing and face masks are required.
Helen will share with everyone the great joy of traditional hand drumming from Guinea, West Africa. Come be a part of this joyful group where we come together as a small village and enjoy the uplifting beauty of the traditional hand drumming ensemble. You will learn basic rhythms on dunun drums and the djembe accompaniment parts. You’ll also learn the origins of each rhythm, receive expert instruction on all instruments in the traditional djembe orchestra and deepen your understanding of place of music, dance, and song in West African life. Helen is able to work simultaneously with students of all levels — beginners to professional. Limited drums are available for use during the class for those students who do not have a drum.
