Guinea, WEST AFRICA - with Master Village Drummer

Namory Keita

January 2019 - details coming soon!

 Get ready to be imersed in the culture and rhythms of the Hamana region with Namory Keita & his drumming family!

Village group


We meet in Conakry, the capitol of Guinea, to explore the city, its culture and wonderful neighborhoods, and of course, daily drum classes!

Next we travel to the beautiful waterfalls of Kindia before heading north to the village of Sangbarala, where we get deep into the magic of Africa. We cross the Niger river into the Hamana region where some of the most renowned drummers in the world have begun their musical lives. Amazing!

Imagine being surrounded by great drummers playing the full Dounoun ensemble for each of your Djembé or Doun classes.

You will hear and feel the music as you never have before. 

Come with me to my village, Sangbarala

Building at Drum Conf

The Drum Builders Conference is a yearly event, usually early summer, where drum builders come from far and wide to share their knowledge and teach their skills to students and other builders. Not to be missed!

Namory loves this conference, as a drum builder himself, he brings a great deal of knowledge to the table. He has a great time with all the builders and students that attend. If you are interested in drum construction-this is the place to be!

Namory at Camp Faretta

Namory will be teaching at Camp Fareta!

Camp Fareta is a residential workshop hosted by Youssouf Koumbassa and features many other master dancers and drummers from Guinea, Mali, and Senegal. It is an immersion in West African drum and dance that started in 2006, and is held at a beautiful setting in the southern Sierras of California each summer.

Get ready for Camp Fareta, August 2018!
