We are delighted to announce our first ever residential kamele n’goni weekend.
Situated in a beautiful old house in Laragh, Co Wicklow just a few minutes drive from the lakes of Glengalough.
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.
