Greetings Sunshine Grove,

We have been studying many of the traditional west African rhythms over the past 3 years.  bringing in the Dununs has added a extra flavor that everyone loves.  So I was thinking....


Along with our amazing Dunun Ensembles, we are adding in a study of Bill Matthews Conga Joy Live.  Over the course of the year will be learning and working on over 100 rhythms from his work plus more! Through our in person live teaching joined with watching each rhythm on a big screen, we will cover a variety of different situations including rhythms for one drum, rhythms for two drums (one player), rhythm dialogues for two players and rhythms in full ensemble.

Easy to learn at all levels!
