In 2009, we brought the son of Famoudou Konaté, Billy Nankouma Konaté to Boston for a nationwide tour that was so successful in many ways. People LOVE Billy's playing but as a teacher, there is none better!
Billy's ability to get you to play at your best and play what you don't think you can ever do, is simply magic!
I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE all of you to spend the weekend with this wonderful man. Not only a great teacher and player steeped in the true history of the djembe, culture and traditions that I can't even go into here, he is the nicest guy you could ever meet!
In this 3 day workshop Billy will guide you, amaze you and educate you in both village style and city style Guinean Drumming. He also may teach from his deep knowledge of rhythms from other areas in Africa that he knows and studies.
Billy Konate doesn't come this way often as there are many local 'master' drummers in New England. Billy is different! You will play and learn things with Billy that you won't get anywhere else!
Please save the dates October 16, 17 and 18, 2015 at DrumConnection in the large room - perfect for a good size group. I know Billy well; we traveled the US in 2009 together and it was a pleasure to work with him and get to know each other so well. I know Billy and I know what he delivers in a workshop and YOU don't want to miss a moment of this!
