Adult Enrichment

AFRICAN DRUMMING

Learn to play traditional rhythms of West Africa from Sekou Fofana, a dynamic percussionist and vocalist from Guinea, West Africa. Sekou grew up in (the capital city) Conakry and came to the Seattle area in 2016. He has worked for over 30 years studying, making, and teaching music. He is a joyous, strong, and energetic artist with a lot to share. In this class he will introduce the different drums (djembe, dun dun, sangban, and kenkeni), and share techniques for playing each one. He will teach about 2-3 different rhythms, covering what significance they have culturally, from what region they come, a short song that might be sung along with them, and-of course-how to play them! Sekou is an incredibly patient teacher, passionate about his craft and dedicated to preserving his culture through sharing the music and song.
