Following on from the success of our recent weekend workshops, Drumroots is pleased to announce we will be running a workshop for our friend, collaborator and awesome djembe teacher, Sidiki Dembele. Sidiki, from the Ivory Coast is one of the country’s top djembe players, regularly appearing not only with our own performance group Tanante but with other groups country and worldwide, including the mighty Ballet Nimba. Sidiki is an outstanding performer whose energy and charisma is clear to see in his unique teaching style contributing to the excellent reputation of his renowned and exciting workshops.
This workshop will be aimed at intermediate to advanced djembe players with a good foundation in djembe playing and experience in West African rhythms. The workshop will be supported by members of Tanante and will be hosted once again at the excellent Z Arts Centre in Manchester.
There is no need for prior booking for this workshop but if you’d like to let us know that you’ll be attending, as well as stay up to date with who else will be coming along, then please join the Facebook Event.
