African Drumming

Abass will share the joy and happiness of African rhythm using mindfulness techniques, drumming demonstration and body percussion.

This Mindfulness African Drumming Session is a brilliant way to celebrate the traditions of Ghanaian music and drumming.

Abass Dodoo – Master Drummer, was born in Nsawam (a town in south  Ghana), into a famous family of drummers. 

At the age of 6yrs, he was inspired by his grandmother “Abiba Okailey Ablah”, the mother of the Ghanaian famous master drummer, “Mustapha Tettey Addy”, as she taught him drumming by singing traditional rhythms. 

He works full time as a musician, providing authentic African music, Jazz rhythms and improvisation. 

For the workshop we encourage you to bring along something that can make a sound and be prepared to use your bodies as instruments by clapping and stomping.

We aim to ensure lots of enjoyment and fun along with information on drumming and African culture embracing the celebration of Black History Month. 

The workshop will take part on Zoom, all participants must order a place. If you all live in the same house then you can use one device for the session.

This event is provided in thanks to funding from the Federation or Museums and Art Galleries of Wales and The Culture and Sport Division, Welsh Government.
