Event details

  • Saturday | July 28, 2018

Drumming is a spiritual practice. Whether you’ve ever played a drum before or not, Paco has a method to teach you and non-musicians are most welcome. In this workshop, Paco will teach you the basics of how to play the djembe (pronounced JEM-bay), a drum that is found all over West Africa, as well as a basic traditional multi-part rhythmic pattern called Kuku. The drums you will be using are hand-made by his brothers.

Appropriate for ages 16 and up.

$20 per person payable cash or check at the event.

Deadline for required pre-registration is July 26. Email now to reserve your spot! dre@uusmc.org
