Workshop Description:
Bring your drum (a conga drum or bucket will do in a pinch) if you have one. If you want to borrow a drum for class, email Bongo at bongodounoun@gmail.com and bring $5 cash (a schlepping fee).

Bongo teaches traditional rhythms from Guinea, West Africa. Students will learn different accompanying parts for the djembe as well as solo technique. Students interested in playing dunduns (the foundational drums for the rhythm, played with sticks) will have a chance to learn kenkeni, sanban, and dundunba parts for the rhythms introduced in class.
