Please tell us a little about yourself and what you would like to get from our group

Trained as a drum kit player 15/17 yrs. I practised and played as member with bands such as "The Desert Wolves", "Too much Texas" and later with Mike Mooney - guitarist to the likes of Julian Cope, Phycadelic furs, Ian McCulloch. I then studied at Manchester Metropolitan University and trained as a community artist 1992. I continue to study and teach. I would like to meet like minded people.

What west African Drumming experience do you have if any

We travel to West Africa we try every year for about 7 years now. There is a massive scene here in Manchester with many good groups and teachers and we know them all so between us have a wealth of experience as we continue to study with each other. Drumming and music is how you express emotions of an experience that has happened in your life.

Introduction

To meet like minded drummers, soul friends, best friends, pass on my knowledge and soak up what others are willing and think they have to pass on.

What Craig W. is saying about this Meetup Group

If you want to learn djembe come and join a bunch of like minded lunatic drummer mad people learning African rhythms in a very sociable friendly if not a bit whacky atmosphere. We are also planning for you to get involved in doing gigs and the social scene we have established is blossoming.
