We won’t be able to run a UK workshop in 2023 as there is simply too much going on! You can however find us at WOMAD and at Tribal Earth, offering free beginner sessions at both. Join our mailing list below to keep in the loop.
We will again be holding our annual week-long workshop in the beautiful Aveyron, in the south of France. This time it will run Saturday to Saturday, 9th-16th September 2023 Scroll on down for details. In Kafountine Senegal we hold a rolling open workshop and people come and go on dates to suit them as we are open for 6 months a year.
Teaching mixed abilities together works well and ultimately each player needs to find a place to sit and play on their own. At times people often pair up with others at a similar level or a more experienced player will offer to support a beginner – everyone benefits. Group work is supportive but it is a balance of individual tuition with a little group work. Language or lack of it has never been a problem, native English speakers are often outnumbered and communication somehow always works beautifully!
