In West African societies, the djembe drum is the heartbeat of the people, expressing emotions, values and culture. Join master drummer and griot Amadou Kienou at the Siraba ("the meeting place on the road" in Malinke) as he shares the universal language of the drum. Learn the origins and role of the drum in Africa as you combine the bass, tone and slap to form basic rhythms of West African drumming, blended with the poly-rhythms of the dundun bass drums. Immerse yourself in the moment and feel the tempo of life!
