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 dundun. 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.
