Drum, Dance & Vocal Workshop For All Ages

Presented by King Marong & Afro Mandinko

Take part in this dynamic workshop where you will be swept up by the irrepressible rhythmic energy and skill of King Marong and members of Afro Mandinko. They will take you through their influences from across West Africa, from coastal Gambian highlife to deep Saharan desert blues, which is underpinned by the deep roots of the traditional rhythms and melodies of their Manding heritage. Put what you learn in to practice later on in the afternoon as they take to Stage 2, which is dance friendly.
