It has been a while from last post. Miami Drums had entered a hiatus mode for the last couple months which we’re trying to recover from. Hopefully you never stopped drumming.
There is an update on Delou’s on going classes schedule for 2014. They are hosting Wednesday classes until January 15th at the Little Haiti cultural center:
Beginners Community African Dance, Drum & Music Class Offers: Technique, Coordination Balance and Cultural & Self Expression
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.
