So this is how it works. We would start the day with group warm ups and the basic bones of the groove for that session, afterwards everyone can find a little corner to play and I will go around everyone spending time adding to the rhythm individually.. So when you have one part down, I will come back with improvisations for you. Then we can all get together again in the evening to play.

Please take a look at some information on Kamele n’goni here and check out some of our free Kamele n’goni lessons so you may know what to expect.
