We have been running African drumming workshops for over a decade with hundreds of students enjoying the infectious rhythms of the djembe and dunun drums of West Africa.

We run five courses throughout the year between September and June, and regular one day workshops all year round.  Our Next five week Course starts on Wednesday 14th November 2018 in the Temple Lane Rehearsal Studios in the the heart of Temple Bar, Dublin.
