The djembe class guides the participants into the joyful world of West African rhythms with the master drummer Cheick Bangoura. The class suits best people with some previous experience of djembe drumming or other African percussions. Please, bring your own djembe, if possible!
Cheick Bangoura is a humorous, clear and versatile teacher, who comes from Guinea where he was brought up with dance and music. He has played in numerous groups, e.g. Hamana, Percussion Boka, Ballet Matam and Ballet Bagatea. Cheick has lived in Iceland for more than 15 years now and has been teaching drumming in addition to playing in various bands. He will be performing at Fest Afrika with his own afrobeat band, The Bangoura Band. He has received excellent reviews as a musician both in Guinea and in Iceland.
