Playing Levels

Participants should select either the beginner/intermediate level or the intermediate/advanced level when registering. Everyone is encouraged to choose their levels honestly and modestly. If you’re not sure which group to choose, please contact me to discuss what is best. Mamady may re-assign participants to a different level at his discretion.

Recording the Workshop
Audio recording is allowed and encouraged. Video recording is not allowed. Mamady is methodical and clear when demonstrating rhythms for recordings. You’ll walk away with good audio recordings. (Please don’t try to take a smart phone movie from behind your drum. You’ll be caught and will look silly.)

Djembés are available to rent for a cost of $5 per day. Let me know, by e mail, if you need a drum and for how many days. A djembé will be waiting for you at the workshop.
