with Dramane Koné

Join Internationally Renowned Master Teacher Dramane Kone for an experience in rhythm & soul, beats & grooves with these West African Drumming workshops:

  • Advanced: Adding technique and solo sets (2-3:30pm)

Master drummer Dramane Koné was born in Burkina Faso in West Africa and was soon recognized as a musical prodigy of the famous Kone griot lineage. By age 3, Dramane was studying djembe performance with his father and grandfather, both griots and master drummers with lifetime of drum experience. Having established himself at a very early age, Kone is billed as a world-class djembefola and balafon perfomer. In more reflective moods, he has insisted that 'there is no such thing as a world's best musician' due to the subjectivity of music appreciation.
