Event Navigation

This class is an introduction to Congolese drumming.  Experience the drum we play which is called “ngoma” (“giving the strength of the panther”).  It is like the conga drum.  The class will focus on how to hit the drum and stay mindful of the sounds created.  We will learn some traditional rhythms and accompaniments, and then put on a brief performance.  For more information about Congolese drumming see “brazzabeat.org” and follow Brazzabeat on Facebook.  The minimum attendance is 5 and the maximum attendance is 9.  Register by Friday, January 4, 2019.  Classes will be held at the Seymour Center in Chapel Hill from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. on consecutive Fridays, February 1-22, 2019.  The class is FREE and the instructor is Kenneth Wilson, MD.
