Namory Keita

This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to study Djembe with Namory Keita, Master Drummer from the village of Sangbaralla, Guinea, West Africa. Namory is a sought after teacher and performer with a unique style and a wealth of traditional knowledge very rare to find outside the villages of Guinea. His resources include not only his wonderful ability to engage any audience but also his relationships with dancers and drummers locally and around the world.

‬‬‬‬Namory will lead participants through a variety of rhythms and techniques and his infectious joy for playing and teaching will inspire you.  Whether a beginner or a seasoned player, you are sure to have a great learning experience.
