this weekend Mark is hosting a drum class by Papa Malick Faye at his place – He’s also teaching a dance class this Sunday at the Little Haiti Cultural Center – 212 NE 59th Terrace Miami FL 33137 3:00pm-4:30pm $15.00
Drum class cost $30 for three hours. Saturday October 29, 2011 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Address is 4427 SW 16 St (please go around the block to park & enter through the back) Miami, FL.
Papa Malick Faye, a master drummer from Dakar, Senegal, West Africa, comes from a family of Griot drummers that stems back centuries. This workshop will be on Lenjin & Kassa. I recommend this workshop for anyone that already has some control over the instrument and it’s ready to take it to another level.

There is some seating; but you may want to bring your own. If you want to bring kids, the playground is great .
Announcing Memorial Day Drum Circle – Monday 5/26
Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami @ 2PM till whenever, probably near the south end of the park. The Carribean music festival will have taken place the day before and there are no events scheduled there on Memorial Day (except for Yoga in the Park at 6PM – don’t think they’ll mind). There’s a playground there and the breeze off the bay. There are palms by the water and there are several covered structures that may be available. You really do need to bring your own seating for this one. Extra drums may be available.
Thanks Mark for the info!
Changing location to Legion Park 6447 NE 7 Street – just east of Biscayne Blvd.
I love this change since downtown is always a hassle!!!
See you guys this Sunday and next monday
Broward Drum Circle at Fern Forest Nature Center in Coconut Creek – Broward County has some of the best drummers in South Florida, and this is the best place to find them on a Saturday afternoon. The site is sheltered, so the circle rocks even in a downpour. I come up from Miami, and it’s always worth the trip.
