Study djembe and dunun drumming in Africa with masters of the craft in a true cultural and musical immersion. DrumConnection of Boston, MA is hosting an unforgettable journey to the birthplace of the djembe. In this three week trip (1 and 2 week options available) you will study drum and dance, attend festivals and celebrations, learn about the country and its people, and discover the magic that is Africa. We will be based in Simbaya Gare, a village suburb of Conakry, the capital of Guinea. We will be guests at Famoudou Konate’s compound, where we will enjoy comfortable accommodations, exquisite African food, and the hospitality of the Guinean people.

See below for more detailed information.
