African Drumming Experience London

African Drumming Experience London

It’s good vibes all the way with these African drumming workshops in London! We are offering two-hour group African drumming taster experiences and one-hour one-to-one drumming lessons too. Both are led and taught by Master Drummers who certainly know how to get the rhythm going.

You’ll be learning authentic African beats using traditional djembe drums. These often highly decorative drums are played with your hands and when you get a harmony going with multiple djembe drums beating in time it really is the most mesmerising and uplifting of sounds and sensations.

It takes many many years of study and practice to be a djembefola (that’s a master drummer) but in just a couple of hours you’ll be able to learn the basic bass tone and slap techniques used to play African drums. Teaching is done in a ‘call and response’ style so you literally copy and repeat what your drum master is doing. You’ll soon capture the essence of basic African drumming rhythms such as the ‘crocodile walk’ Jole and Kuku to great effect.

The sound of African drumming is a powerful one and is sure to move you. It’s pretty uplifting stuff and what’s more it really is an activity that everyone can enjoy together. And there’s no need to read music or know your scales for these magical musical workshops.

As well as learning to play the drums you’ll also hear about the history of African music and the significance and importance of the djembe drum in music and culture. It’s fascinating stuff and helps you understand why drumming has even more importance than just being a captivating musical sound.

Lessons take place at a music studio in east London. It’s a community-based project that’s not for profit so taking part in these African drumming workshops will ensure the survival of the initiative so everyone can enjoy and benefit from the captivating rhythms of the djembe drum.
