AFRICAN DRUM CLASSES – DJEMBE

 

 

Our  Drum classes Sunshine Coast now have three groups. These are called Kalankora Foli for the beginners drum class, Badenya Foli for the intermediate drum class and Foli Kan for the experienced drum class. Foli means play in the Manding languages and play is what we are all about!!

KALANKORA FOLI – BEGINNERS DRUM CLASS

The beginners class is for people with little or no experience playing djembe (West African drum). It is a class that is about finding your rhythm and the three essential sounds your djembe can make to create rhythms. Playing rhythms together, we will build a vocabulary of how these sounds are arranged together to make the rhythms and songs of the djembe. After 3 or 4 months you will be ready to move on into Badenya Foli.

BADENYA FOLI – INTERMEDIATE DRUM CLASS

Badenya means community in the Manding languages and this class is where we begin to explore the relationships between the instruments and the rhythms they play. Just as a community is created through the relationships of its people. Rhythms are created through the relationship of the instruments, the rhythms they play individually and together, and the roles they fulfill in the music.

FOLI KAN – EXPERIENCED DRUM CLASS

Foli Kan means literally “play sound” and in this class we begin to do just that. With the sounds, rhythms and techniques in our hands we can take our instruments and music and play with them. The rhythms and their melodies play harmoniously together creating music that we perform to the community. With breaks, songs and solos we play music that connects and celebrates people and community. Foli Kan is often joined by the Muso Foli Dance Troupe who bring the joy and spirit of African dance to the performance.

AFRICAN DRUM CLASSES – DUNDUN

DUNDUN DRUM CLASS

These are the cylindrical stick drums that you see in class and that accompany the djembe rhythms we play. If you have taken a class with us before we would of introduced them to you. The middle sized drum is the Sangban and often it plays the signature rhythm to the music. The smallest drum is the Kenkenni and it is the time keeper. Last and largest is the Dundunba which is the power of the Dundun ensemble and also completes the melody. They each have two notes and are played with a metal bell which adds the light, interlocking patterns and another timbre to the ensemble. The dundun rhythms follow the rhythm of the bells.

 

 

This class is for those that love to drum with sticks! It has a very different feel to the djembe which is a hand drum. and allows the student to start understanding the dundun patterns to the rhythms and the technique involved to play them. No experience is necessary. A great class for stress relief, coordination, memory, rhythm and fun.

 

 

Terms and Conditions: All drum classes sunshine coast are non-refundable, non-transferable, and cannot be exchanged for classes at a later date once the course has started.
