African drumming with Agida African Arts

Join us for an African Drumming workshop with Karim Mbaye, an urban Griot from Senegal, who plays and teaches African drumming and dance throughout the UK.

The drumming will be taught on the Djembe (a drum played with both hands) and Karim will also talk about other traditional drums (bringing some along to show and share) and he will also share information about the role of the Griot in his culture.

The workshop are suitable for all ages and abilities from beginners through to advanced drummers.

This event is part of our Slavery Remembrance Day 2019 and Summer event series.
