After the success of our numerous previous courses, we’re back for another ‘workshop band’ course for 2012. This time hosted at the prestigious space of the Zion Arts Centre, the course will be every Thursday over six weeks and will culminate in an end performance in Zion Arts Centre (on Friday 27th 2012). We will take the group of participants though all aspects of traditional West African rhythms and will focus on forming it into a ‘workshop band’, by teaching a full complement rhythms new to Manchester on both djembe and dundun, compete with accompaniments, choreographed arrangements, solo parts for those who wish to push themselves even further. The sessions will be fun and energetic, yet designed to accommodate newcomers, but extensive enough to test even the best drummers.
