Moussa Traore Sundays at DrumConnection

Drumming in Boston

Moussa Traore and Namory Keita Sundays at DrumConnection

 

While Namory is away, the great Master Moussa Traore of Mali, will be teaching the classes. Come on out and see how great a drum class and experience can be!

 

Moussa Traore was born and raised in Mali, West Africa. He has been playing the djembe for over thirty years, and in 1984, after completing a twelve-year apprenticeship, he was deemed a "master" by his teacher, Sega Cisse. Moussa has achieved great recognition throughout Mali as an accomplished musician in the theater, in traditional ceremonies, as well as in the Malian pop scene. Among musicians in Bamako, Moussa is considered to be one of the top djembe players in the country. Since moving to the U.S., Moussa has continued to distinguish himself as a highly respected teacher and performer. He has given drum workshops in cities throughout the U.S.
