Upstairs At The Chapel – MUSIC WORKSHOP – THE KAKATSITSI MASTER DRUMMERS
MUSIC WORKSHOP & CONCERT THE KAKATSITSI MASTER DRUMMERS FRIDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 2022,
Upstairs at the Chapel
We welcome the Kakatsitsi, a group of traditional drummers, dancers and singers from Southern Ghana. Their music combines drumming grooves played on a variety of West African drums with traditional chants sung in six part harmony, the quality of which sets them above most dance-led traditional African groups. Since 1996, Kakatsitsi have toured the UK 15 times, including high profile performances at WOMAD, Glastonbury and many other festivals and venues. The recent addition of a strong dance element, to complement the already outstanding drumming and singing components, has established Kakatsitsi as one of the leading drumming groups in Africa.
During the afternoon there will be an incredible opportunity to learn from the masters themselves in a drumming and dance workshop. This drumming and dance workshop is a unique chance to learn from the masters! You will learn some of the different techniques used in creating different sounds and rhythms from traditional djebme and kpanlogo drums, and the final session will be a “follow the leader” style dance lesson. All abilities welcome, suitable for ages 9+.Workshop adult ticket £25 /child (aged 9-16) ticket £12 All tickets available at The Art Shop and Chapel. (Online booking fee £1) 01873 852 690 / 736 430
