Djembe Immersion









Structured Djembe Lessons


Learn the way of Djembe Drumming with the Susu system, practices and techniques used to train for the African Ballet of Guinea; the Djoliba.


In your stay at the compound you will be taught and will practice the correct technique, posture and will learn tempo playing many 'Technique' patterns to instil clarity and elevated percussion.


You will also learn to play African rhythm and understand the significance of tempo, rhythm and melody within West African Percussion music, practising introduction and rhythm patterns and arrangements with Gibbi Camara.


Lessons for the Doun Doun, Bougaraboo, Tama (talking drum) and dance are also available on request.
