One 4-hour workshop per day. All 4 days are for serious-beginner to upper-intermediate levels. Famoudou is adept at combining different levels in one group. Each day is self-contained, and different rhythms will be taught each day.
Bring your djembe. There will be about 40 dunduns (bass drums) available for workshop use, but if you want to be sure we don't run out, bring one bass drum (Dundunba, Sangban or Kenkeni) and 2 sticks with you. All participants will learn and play the bass drum parts as well as the djembe during the workshops.
Youth participants are welcome, but should be serious students no younger than 10 years old.
No video-recording. Audio-recording is permitted for participants' personal use. Instructional content is not to be published, re-distributed, broadcast or web-posted without Famoudou Konate's written consent.
No auditing or observation during the workshops.
