Balafon Village Workshop with Adama Daou

August 12 – 13, 2017


With simple rhythmic and melodic exercises, Adama Daou will introduce you to the balafon, an African wooden xylophone that UNESCO has named as a masterpiece of intangible heritage. Balafon is a soothing instrument allowing a distinctive musical journey.

A Malian musician from the city of Mopti, Daou developed his skills in African percussions (djembe, dumdum, calebasse and balafon) at an early age, when he took part in traditional ceremonies.
