YES- WE CAN MEET IN PERSON! We will meet at the Cricket Club and play together, with appropriate
social distancing. Drums will be provided (and cleaned between users), but you are welcome to bring your
own if you prefer.
We will be playing funky stomp-your-feet African rhythms together from day one. Don’t worry if you have
never played before – Alison will show you how. Learn or consolidate basic playing technique, pick up
some traditional grooves then we are ready to layer them together and get funky. Experienced players will
get some more challenging parts, some additional focus on the bass drum and the principles of the bell
parts, and opportunities to learn and apply some djembe solo techniques.
