Seckou Keita and Mohamed Sipa Sylla

djembe tuition in Abené, Senegal

December 2019 -January 2020.


Drum Whisperer and Hartbeats are very excited to offer you the opportunity of two or three weeks of top quality djembe tuition between 27th December 2019 and 10th or 17th January 2020 with two fantastic teachers in the beautiful "drumming village" Abené, on the coast of Senegal.


Seckou Keita will be leading classes for the second and third week of the camp, and Mohamed Sipa Sylla will be leading the class for the first week.

Seckou is an incredible musician and fantastic teacher, performing and teaching all over the world. And yet, those of you who already know him will be aware of just how approachable, personable and fun his teaching style can be. Abene is also populated by a number of Guinean musicians and dancers. One of the most highly respected of these is Mohamed Sipa Sylla. Sipa has been running workshops and classes for many years and is a popular choice for djembe students who visit Abene. 


Please note: this course is not suitable for beginners / improvers. If you are unsure of what djembé level you are, please contact us.
