This coming February the UK will see a return visit from a very special West African djembe fola, none other than Mamady Keita! It’s been a long time since he’s been on these shores and it’s a very special opportunity to learn djembe and dundun from Mamady, who is now widely regarded as one of the greatest teachers of traditional djembe music in the world. Organised by the good people down south at Djembeschool, this full weekend event will be hosted in Bristol, February 2012. Held at DMAC (Dance, Music, Arts Collective), the weekend will consist of daytime 2.5 hour workshop sessions on Saturday and Sunday pitched at intermediate and advanced levels. On the Saturday night there will be a full performance programme with a line up including Tolo Ko Tolo, Hamana, Swedish dancer Sara Galan and our very own Tanante with Iya Sako. (more…)
