    17 hours of drumming, dancing, and singing during a three day workshop with master drummer Kwasi Dunyo - phenominal opportunity for Edmonton drummers and an amazing experience! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Dr. Michael Frishkopf (ethnomusicologist at the U of A) for getting a grant to bring Kwasi to the U of A - and for offering this incredible experience for FREE to the public!!! Also, a big thank you to Robert from the Wajjo drum group (and West African Ensemble at the U of A) for all he did to make this special offering happen!

    If you have a drum bring it along. If you don't have one you need to let Kathy know as there are some drums available for use. The supply is not limitless so book as soon as possible
