Event Details

Drums hold a special place in the culture and history of Africa. Used for a variety of occasions, from sounding the call of war, to conveying joy, play, community and death, even reaching out to the spirit world, drumming is as much a spiritual practice as it is integral to the social and cultural fabric of the African way of life. In much of Africa, drums can also symbolise royalty and offer protection.

This presentation showcases the percussive and melodious elements of West African mandingue music through the djembe (a wooden drum with goat skin) and kora (a traditional African string instrument).
