This group is for people who have an interest in and are looking to learn hand drumming mainly playing West African/ Afro Cuban drums. We're a friendly drum circle based In Reading at Readipop Studios currently with around 15 members.
We play every Wednesday from 7:15-9:15pm working on lots of different rhythms all levels of drummersd are welcome from total beginner to expert. 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 you right from the beginning techniques required to play to much more advanced phrases to push your technique. Regardless of what level you are there is always something you can play.
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.
