” I always knew I had to drum. Trained as a classical musician, I knew I was ‘home’ when my hands first played the djembe!
I was first introduced to this wonderful world by talented colleague Julian Raphael in Wellington.
Having already developed a business in Palmerston North (New Zealand,) whereby I enable folk to discover their joy and groove through singing dance & ukulele, djembe was a natural addition. It’s power to transform & bring people together captured me straight away. In the process of sharing/teaching/hosting/performing and facilitating a myriad of drumming experiences, this instrument has changed me forever.
Working with Simon on his NZ trips definitely is a highlight, encouraging me to bring all of my knowledge together. Now with tours to Ghana added to my repertoire, I am joyfully immersed in the drumming & dancing scene, feeling mega gratitude for all the wonderful folk and experiences that are flowing my way. Rock on!”
