Drums-for-Zion-CourseAs the end of our current six week African Drumming course at The Zion Arts Centre draws near, we are honing the skills of the participating students for their end performance. Thus far we have worked very hard to bring out the very best from a mixed group and tried to put people in the best places to produce an exciting end performance spectacle. The group will appear in the foyer/bar space of The Zion Arts centre to showcase what they have learnt to friends, family and West African music lovers. Their performance will be followed by a short show by our own performance group Tanante. The whole event will be free to all to come along and enjoy, so please get down and show support for our hard working students!

NB/ This is an early evening event and we will be strictly sticking to the time allowed, please arrive a short while before the event starts, live music will be from 19.15. Also, the capacity in the space is limited so to avoid disappointment, make sure you get down on time.

  1. Hi Guys,

    I would just like to say a massive thank you for such a wonderful evening last Friday.
    As you know I came along to support three of our Kontaani drummers who had attended the course and watch their final performance.
    I can’t begin to tell you what a fabulous time I had.
    The performance was fantastic – I was astounded that all the students had learned 3 completely new numbers in just 6 weeks and played them so well.
    I could clearly see that our 3 had definitely grown in confidence and ability. We are all so shy when it comes to singing but I was amazed to see all three belting out the songs and not an embarassed look in sight – they were having a ball!

    I actually felt sad when it was over but was then treated to an outstanding performance from Tanante who never cease to lift my heart.

    The initial performance by the wonderful Kora players was a lovely gentle lead into a fabulous evening.

    All this great entertainment AND it was free to get in!
    The Zion Arts Centre is a superb venue – lovely friendly staff, great food and reasonable priced bar.

    Congratulations Drumroots! You worked very hard to put it all together and as a member of the audience I can honestly say it was brilliant!
    I hope to attend the next course myself!
    Marie x
