Saturday, September 30th, 2017
10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Beginners are welcome and all instruments are provided. You will learn to play the basics, and a traditional rhythm. Workshops are taught using an easy to follow, step-by-step method. Playing African music is a great way to find your groove, de-stress and connect with another culture. It is a form of musical meditation that is rooted in ancient wisdom passed on from generation to generation over the centuries. Most importantly, here in Victoria, it is a fun way to learn music in a friendly group setting.

Victoria, BC has become one of the few places in North America where you can learn to play balafon on a regular basis. Instructor Jordan Hanson studied traditional African music extensively over the past 20 years with some of the most famous performers from countries like Burkina Faso, Guinea, Ghana, Tanzania & Uganda. In Victoria, he has taught more than ten thousand people how to drum and play music.

Workshops are $29 each, or sign up for multiple sessions at a reduced rate. For more info & registration, please visit:
