Come along and join Graeme Goodwin of Rhythmworks UK to experience the unique intensive Djembe technique with drum meditation. Graeme has played Djembe for 15 years. He studied in The Gambia with Master Tomas Camara and built a Drumming Holiday Centre, Alla Leake Kunda in the Gambia West Africa with Master Tomas.
A djembe is a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa. Graeme explains "the roots of popular music - all that we've been listening to for the past few decades including jazz, blues, pop & rock - all trace back to West African percussion."
Allow Graeme to guide you in the drum and learn to make the drum speak. These are fun, friendly and informal classes which which teach you the roots of African Drumming and Percussion from West Africa. A 4-week course starts on the first friday of each month. Classes run from 7.30pm - 9.30pm at The Wellbeing Centre. Don't worry if you can't make 4 consecutive classes as there is an opportunity to catch up missed sessions in subsequent months if necesssary.
There are just 10 places available on each course (we can fit more in the room but Graeme likes to keep the classes to within this number so that he can give everyone enough attention to guide them properly through the techniques and rhythms) so do grab your place quickly! At just £40 for at least 8 hours worth of drumming (some workshops may run over in time if everyone is enjoying themselves too much to stop), this is an opportunity not to be missed!
You will learn:
If you have your own drum, you are welcome to bring it along but Graeme has enough drums for everyone so no problem if you don't (although he can make one for you if you'd like one!)
