Welcome to Bend West African Drum and Dance Meetup Group!!!! I decided to start this group because I wanted to share my love for playing, teaching and performing West African rhythms. I also wanted to provide a space for people who are interested in playing, studying, performing the djembe, dununs and West African Dance. Whether you have never touched a drum, are an advanced student, or just enjoy the culture and rhythms of West Africa, I hope you find this group a place to get your drum on!

This is an excellent fit if you are looking for:

Social opportunities to meet new people

Enjoy West African culture, food, history, and tradition

Have never played a drum all the way to an advanced player

Enjoy listening to ethnic drumming and dancing performances

Interested in taking drumming or dancing classes

Want to keep informed of Guest dancers and teachers

Want to have fun playing drums (drum circles, jams, classes etc.)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
