This is Peak Brain's ongoing West African style Rhythm Training group, where we use traditional Malinke rhythms to get out of our heads and into our hands and bodies.
It is currently free, and open to the public (RSVPs via this MeetUp group required, since we only have ~ 10 drums).
There is lots of evidence that training in rhythm can improve brain function, and it's also a lot of fun!
Join us on Friday evenings for a West African style class that is suitable for beginning through intermediate players. Drums are provided.
The learning group is currently exploring the following rhythms:
Kuku, Yankidi-Macru, Sofa, and Soli Rapide.
Books and learning materials can be found at:
And all over youtube. We will be using Mamady Keita's source material as our reference.
