To the beat of the (West African) drum

photoThis past Sunday saw the start of West African Drum classes at the studio. Five kids participated in the class, which focuses on basic beats and drumming techniques on the Djembe drum.

The classes are led by Adama Diop, who began performing when he was 7-years-old in his native Senegal, and who has been performing and teaching in California since 1999.

Kids classes (ages 8+) will be held every Sunday at 3 pm, and adult classes will begin this Sunday December 16 at 4:30 pm. And congrats to Adama and his wife who just had a baby last week!
