Hi there! If you're in Bagshot, would Farnham be a reasonable distance for you to travel? I give small group drumcircles. And even some latin percussion to boot if enough people want it.

After having drummed in the beautiful Spanish Hills with my bro, I returned and bought myself a djembe drum! I am in Bagshot, Surrey and would love to jam and learn with others in the local area! Anyone interested and local to me then please do get in touch!

African fire on Scottish winter days

West African Drumming and Dance Workshop – Come along!!

This promises to be an intensive, energetic and fun dance and drumming workshop. It takes place on Friday 4th & Saturday 5th December in The Bongo Club at 4pm-10pm & 11am-5pm respectively. Each day you can experience 2.5h of drumming & 2.5h of dance with an hour break in between.

The classes will be given by Wojtek Peczek and Norah Mc Gettigan both of whom have travelled extensively throughout Guinea and Mali in West Africa studying their traditional music and dance. Both have trained under some of Guinea’s biggest names in djembe and dance, including Mamady Keita, Seckou Keita, Namory Keita, Fanta Kaba, Maria Bangoura, etc. Wojtek and Norah’s in-depth knowledge and skills in West African culture combined with their relaxed and carefree teaching techniques have proved very popular amongst participants in many places around Europe.

The drumming workshop will focus on the Malinke/Susu traditional repertoire while the dance workshop will work on a traditional dance cheoreography which has its’ origins in the heart of the Malinke culture..

All levels are welcome to enquire. You’ll enjoy it!!
