Djembe Circle

Learn the basic drum strokes, patterns and feel for the djembe hand drum from Master Drummer Namory Keita! You can “bring-your-own-drum” or we will have a few bucket drums for people to use. Get ready to join your first drum circle! Namory Keita was born in the village of Sangbarala, Guinea into a family of well-known drummers. At age seven he began drumming, eventually becoming the lead drummer for his village. Namory holds regular classes all over Southern Maine and leads the drum and dance group New Moon Ensemble.
