EVENT: Djembe Workshop with Sayon Camara, Monday Sept 23rd

Monday September 23rd, 6pm at Rhythm Traders

Rhythm Traders is pleased to offer a special djembe class with Sayon Camara of Guinea, West Africa. Sayon was born in the village of Kouya Sidia in Kouroussa in central Guinea. After drumming in the village for 31 years, Sayon left his village as a master djembefola to work in Conakry with the world’s foremost djembe player, Famoudou Konate.

When Famoudou heard him play he was amazed by the clarity of the sound Sayon produced on the djembe. For the next eight years, Sayon worked intensively with Famoudou Konate and his performing group Hamana Foli Kan, teaching at his workshops, and playing at concerts and on his CDs.

Cost: $15 payable at the door. Space is limited to 35 people, so please call, email, or stop by to reserve your spot now!! 503-288-6950, brad@rhythmtraders.com.
