Adama provides 1-2-1 sessions for beginners and experienced players. These sessions will give you the opportunity to focus closely on your technique, work on your sense of African rhythm and gain a deeper understanding of how the djembe and dunduns communicate with each other. Adama will also teach you African songs that accompany the drum music.
