Come and learn the traditional rhythms of West Africa…without even leaving the valley! Jennifer continues to study the djembe in Gatineau with Catherine Veilleux and has taken workshops with Bolokada Conde, M’Bemba Bangoura, Dartagnan Camara, and many others including Grand Master Mamady Keita. She has also travelled to Guinea to study and is excited to share what she has learned with you!
Both group lessons and private classes are available, and djembes are available to rent when you register at a cost of $5/class or $30/month (please request when registering).
Want to organize a workshop in Deep River, ON or somewhere else? Email for more information.
