The African drum was originally made as a form of communication. The drum beat in Africa is heard every day for celebration and fun and in some places it is still the main form of communication. The Djembe is the most popular and sought after drum in the world.
In principle, the Djembe (African drum) has three tones. During the first phase of this workshop students will be taught to produce the tones correctly. Once this has been mastered, different rhythms can be learnt. Other instruments will then be added and complex beats and sounds formed.
Student will be supplied with Djembes and other instruments. This will include Shakers – this instrument is shaken and principally used as a rhythm instrument.
Cow Bells are also supplied – The instrument consists of two metal cones. The clapper-less bells are struck rhythmically with a stick.
