Beginners/ Warm-up session: These sessions will be slower paced than the main class, more focused on technique which will be ideal for beginners to learn the basics, good for experienced players wishing to further their skills in a more relaxed environment and great for advanced players to have a warm-up before the normal class starts.
Main class: Manchester longest-running West African Drumming class. This mixed-ability drop-in class is good for beginners and experienced players – and at the start of each month, we begin a new rhythm, giving participants the opportunity to learn both djembe and dun dun. We teach basic accompaniments, bass lines, arranged breaks and solo material, plus traditional African songs, working as a group towards an overall understanding of the music.
It’s that time of year again! Beat-Herder 2014 is nearly upon us and our African drumming performance troupe ‘Tanante’ will be performing as ever in the Stumble Funk tent, this year at 9.30pm on the Sunday night. Our friends, the Stumble Funk crew have put together an awesome line up to contribute to this fantastic festival. We’re really pleased to have a Sunday evening set time and following last years well received show we can only raise the bar- we’re hard at work preparing an extra special stage show for you all with our special guest artist Sens Sagna!
