Drum up new skills at free workshop

A chance to learn the art of African drumming comes to Moreton-in-Marsh in two special FREE workshops on Saturday, June 16.

Tribal Vibes, a group of three West-African artists, will be sharing their love of rhythms at the Moreton Area Centre.

The hands-on sessions, which feature Djembe drumming, run at 10am and 11am.

Then's there a chance to drop in and see the trio of Cheikh Diop, Arona Lo and Oumar Sagna perform at 12 noon in the Council Chamber.

Centre Manager Sarah Cantwell said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to learn a new skill from Senegal, where rhythms and dance are not only leisure, but a major part of the life, culture and traditions.”

The workshops are free but Booking is essential – please call the Moreton Area Office on 01608 650881. No booking is needed for the free performance.
