We are Djembeats! An African drumming group in West London offering an introduction to djembe drumming and traditional West African rhythms. Students will develop a command of different djembe drumming techniques, discover the meaning and language of the rhythms, learn improvisational skills and most importantly have fun in a relaxed and energising African drumming group. As well as our weekly classes, we also organise a regular programme of special events, including jam sessions, performance opportunities and trips to concerts and festivals.

During the summer months (May to August), we practice Brazilian rhythms on the Timbal so that we can join our sister group Tribo for a summer of drum and fun. See http://www.meetup.com/Samba-Reggae/ .

When: Weekly on Mondays, 7-8.30pm, First half, techniques, second half, rhythms

Where: The Maxilla Social Club, 2 Maxilla Walk  London W10 6NQ, Tel: 020 8969 230

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
