DUNUN MAGIC – Introduction to Dunun drumming.

Sunday 25th November 2018

Temple Lane Rehearsals, Temple Bar.


Dununs are the heart of the Maliinke drumming ensemble, made of the small Kersedeni drum, the medium Sanban drum and the large Dununba drum. Each drum is played with a stick in one hand and a bell in the other. Together they form the melody of the rhythm.

In this workshop we will focus on some of the key patterns. The workshop will be limited to 9 participants and as such each student will get to play each of the drums in the ensemble. We will start with the most accessible rhythms and progress to a more complicated version.

No previous experience is necessary and all drums will be provided.

Cost – 35euro
