Join us for a very special event on Wednesday May 19, 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
SCAHC is presenting a workshop featuring the native music of West Africa. We will broadcast the event to your own home via the internet as you join in and play along. It will cost you just $25 to participate.
Specifically designed for virtual participation, anyone can have fun learning in this Africa drumming beginner-level workshop, regardless of experience or ability. Use a drum you have at home. or get creative and grab a pot, pan, box or bucket and learn about the history, culture and rhythm of West Africa!
You will be guided by Bill Scheidt.
Bill picked up an African drum for the first time more than 20 years ago, having studied a variety of Western instruments from age five. Since then, he has traveled to Africa six times, spent more than a year and a half living in rural African villages, and studied percussion at Berklee College of Music. Bill joins a small handful of drummers from around the world who have been commissioned to preserve and teach the music, culture, spirit, and traditions of the Mandingue culture of West Africa .
