Drawing upon my expert knowledge of west African music and songs I provide African music workshops for schools including African drumming, African singing, African story telling and group percussion.

I play a traditional west African xylophone, the balafon, from the Mandengue region of west Africa. I’ve trained with various master balafon players from Gambia, Guinea and Senegal and travelled around these countries, learning about the fascinating musical history and rich culture of this region. I also play djembe and various other percussion instruments as well as sing traditional Mandengue folk songs.
