Djembe Django and the Girl Guides Thinking Day Feb 25th 2017

Kamloops Drum Connection entertained about 50 girl guides during their Feb. 25th Thinking Day!

Feb 25th, Girl Guides Thinking Day about Africa! K.D.C.’s Djembe Django Drummers entertained children with African ensembles and interacted with children to teach them about the drum’s purpose and history and the way African music is arranged. What a great creative group and they did really well in their Yankadi dance steps! A big thanks to all those club leaders out there who take on that job of helping our youth.

KDC – UJAMMA – Community Drum Circle

KDC – UJAMMA – Community Drum Circle

 

Hi there! We had a great response to KDC’S last community drum circle event (50+ drummers on Jan. 27th). Thanks to everyone for their support and enthusiasm on the event page and in the circle time.
In the last drum circle it was facilitated with rhythms, games, and songs as there was a focus on children. KDC will be hosting more community drum circles, but future drum circles will have less facilitation and give drummers a chance to take turns leading the groove.
There will be a UJAMMA community drum circle once a month for the next three months. These will still include children. Please like the KDC Facebook page and subscribe to get info on events and times. The next UJAMMA drum circle will be posted this week.
The circle fee is $5 each for age 12 and over. $10 a family. You can register on a future event page and then please bring your exact change to the circle time. Thank you.
If u need a drum, you may reserve one, and make a donation. I’ll have your name on it at circle time. If you do not reserve a drum you may rent one for $5. I’ll bring 3 extra drums to the circle, the concentration will be on bringing drums for those that have reserved one. There’ll be many percucssion instruments to play with. Rhythms to you! 😆
If u are interested in learning more about drumming, please check out this Website’s Tabs and KDC Facebook under Notes, Services, and Videos. These tabs have resources on drum skill development and fundamentals for drum circles. Thanks everyone.
