West African Drum Class with Fana Bangoura

Drum class with Fana is an exploration into African culture beginning with the heartbeat of the community. Kerfala (Fana) Bangoura is a master drummer, who has performed and toured with the world renown Guinea Ballet. He has been teaching traditional West African drum and dance classes across the United States for the past several years. His perfectionism and energetic style is engaging to students of all ages, preschool to adult.  He is also the Artistic Director of Mounafanyi African Drum and Dance Ensemble.

Traditional African drum rhythms are the basis for Caribbean and Latin music, as well as popular dance music and Hip Hop around the globe. The practice is not just for those who want to perform professionally, but is therapy for stress and promotes self-discipline and focus. Classes are Saturdays at the Baobab:
