About West African Drumming Many different cultures have their own types of drums and rhythms and I find it all fascinating. The region is now referred to as "the Mandingue", hence the term "Tam Tam Mandingue" or "Mandingue drums". Visit ttmda.

The Djembe plays patterns that accompany and embellish the main melody of each specific rhythm. Together they create the main melody of each specific rhythm.

The moment you discover that the melody of each rhythm is different will be an exciting one! The Dunun are often outfitted with metal "bells" which are struck in conjunction with striking the skin. The smallest Dunun is called the Kenkeni; medium is the Sangban and largest is the Dununba.

This is what makes West African music so fantastic It was not only embraced by the students as a favorite activity but the parents loved what their kids were experiencing too.

Some of the parents and teachers ended up becoming students themselves! I love to teach and enjoy watching the students transition from doubt to pure excitement when they learn a rhythm. I take pride in showcasing the students at local festivals and schools. She studies with Grand Masters Mamady Keita and Bolokada Conde and occasionally has the privilege to perform with Bolokada during local events.

Go to the classes page to learn more about the programs Susan teaches. Bill joins a small handful of drummers from around the world who have been commissioned by Mamady Keita to preserve and teach the music, culture, spirit and traditions of the Mandingue djembe.

Bill is one of the most intelligent, compassionate, and fun-loving teachers I have ever had. He teaches without judgement and with the goal for everyone to succeed. I am honored to call him my djembe teacher and my paisan! A mere 50 minute drive from my home. Performing with him is so much fun. He is incredible to watch. My students always leave his workshops with huge smiles of joy on their faces. Keep an eye out for a workshop near you.

Bolo travels the globe spreading his passion and love for the djembe. He occasionally offers classes in Greenville, is available for private lessons, and for repairing and re-heading drums. It was mind-blowing!

I learned ten of his self-created rhythms, solo techniques, and so much more. Watching him implement the pedagogy I learned in training was amazing. He truly is a genius! I attritube much of my success in this program to their support, teaching skills, humor, friendship and POP quizzes! They are both phenomenal teachers.

Piri loves to play dunun and teaches classes at the Greenville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. You can reach her at piriba. He also tunes and re-heads drums and runs workshops on how to tune or repair your own drum.
