Taal Inc. West African Djembe workshop with Varun Venkit

We at Taal Inc. would like to introduce you to the rhythmic world of West-African percussion. This time, the workshop will be led by Varun Venkit- Senior certified teacher of the Tam Tam Mandingue Djembe Academy (an international school of djembe founded by grandmaster djembefola Mamady Keïta TTM Djembe Academy). The #Djembe is a universal symbol of joy and is widespread in West - Africa and now, the world. Music, song and dance is synonymous to life and every rhythm played has a history and traditional significance in daily life.
