Drummers, get ready to sweat with Simon Fraser’s Enduro Djembe class. Back by popular demand, Enduro Djembe is a musical workout for the mind and body, facilitated via the free and easy-to-use software Zoom.
Enduro Djembe is an uninterrupted journey designed to improve your listening skills and strengthen your sounds, stamina and solo repertoire. We begin with technique and build into a steady groove, layering solo phrases until the final crescendo one hour later.
We traverse through 5 rhythms – a mix of 4/4 and 12/8 grooves – with Kpanlgo (Ghana courship rhythm), Maraka (Malian worship/ honouring rhythm), Jensa (Burkia party rhythm), Soli (Guinean circumcision rhythm), and Rumba (Guinea contemporary).
Catered for upper intermediate and advanced level students, and led by Simon Fraser with Magic Michael Naude on support duns.
Next class: Saturday July 11th @ 12pm
Duration: 60 minutes
