African Drum Course
Friday 4pm – 5pm at African Pavilion

Learn to play African rhythms from a pro! Prakash is an artisan of many instruments and specializes in the crafting of djembes. He has been playing and teaching djembe, dun dun and other percussions, and even worked at Svaram in Auroville. Prakash even built (and rebuilt) many of our drums at African Pavilion.

He will walk us through hand exercises, different drumming techniques, how to care for your drum, and he’ll hand us the keys to his veteran drummer knowledge.

The Shamba Ya Moto🔥 squad will definitely be joining his workshops to deepen our connection to our natural rhythms. If you’d like to be part of the core #SYM🔥 crew someday, we encourage you to join us this Friday at 4pm.

Prakash and African Pavilion will provide a limited number of djembes. Bring your own djembe if you have one. Contribution will be asked and costs for 3 classes or more will be reduced.
