Drumming workshops in Galway and Dublin

Two of the favourite workshops both in Galway and Dublin!

In Galway, the facilitator was Barra O’ Flanniagh, a Sligo based musician, teacher and lover of Malinké dundun and djembe music. Over the past 8 years his school ‘Slí na Cro – Malinké music of upper Guinea’ has grown to become the go-to place for newcomers to semi-professional players and all in between looking to further their training and understanding in traditional village style Malinké percussion & song from upper Guinea, West Africa. Both the weekly classes and monthly weekend workshops in the Slí Roundhouse Center are attended by enthusiasts from across the country.

In Dublin, we had the pleasure to host Thomas Tettey Annang, a professional drummer and dancer from Ghana. He has been a member of the Akrowa Dance Ensemble in Accra, Ghana for nine years. Thomas is considered by many to be the premier African hand drummer in Ireland today.
He has played lead and support on a range of African drums and performed various dances.
Thomas has taught drumming and dancing in local schools and to professional musicians from all around the world and teaches Traditional African drumming and dance on all levels and any scale of occasions around Ireland, England and Scotland.
