West African Drumming Workshop At the River Arts Center
Join Chimie Bangoura for West African Drumming, a fun and engaging workshop held Sundays, March 12th through April 2nd, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the River Arts Center in Morrisville. The workshop offers a unique opportunity to explore the foundations of West African hand drumming through the traditional djembe drum for all ages. Traditional Guinean rhythms and techniques will be taught, allowing participants to grow in their drumming skills while enjoying the exuberant energy that African drumming provides.
A master drummer and studio musician, Chimie Bangoura is originally from Matam, the epicenter of drum and dance in Conakry, Guinea. He studied djembe and dundun drumming with Tonton Soriba Sylla for eight years while directing and teaching drum classes to visiting European students, and moved to Vermont in 2007 to share his passion and talent. Bangoura currently resides in Morrisville.
