What we're about
This group is for people who have an interest in and are looking to learn hand drumming playing West African Djembe drums and Dun Dun drums. We're a friendly drum circle based In Reading at Readipop Studios currently with around 15 members. we play every Wednesday from 7-9pm working on lots of different rhythms, we're looking for beginner level and upwards players to join our group. I've been lucky enough to travel to West Africa to learn from master drummers Mamady Keïta, Seckou Keita and many others and have been playing for about 16 years, I'll guide right from beginning techniques required to play the drums through the Djembe parts, Dun Dun (bass drums) parts onto Djembe accompaniment parts and solo parts. Regardless of what level you are there is always something you can play, we've had lots of new people recently join so if you are a beginner your more than welcome were a friendly bunch and the center we play at is always bristling with other groups and musicians so It's a fantastic opportunity to socialize with like minded people. This year working closely with Readipop we also have had plenty of opportunity for performances as well so if your interested please contact me drums can be provided I look forward to hearing from you.
