Balafon Village Workshop with Adama Daou


Everyone: FREE

Sunday, August 13
Boulevard Pavilion and Patio

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.
