drumming and percussion for women

DGAS is a group of women who make music with djembés (African hand drums) and other percussion instruments. We run drumming afternoons and evenings for women who are interested in learning more about rhythm or just want to hit that groove for a while. We also hold an annual weekend camp in Norfolk where we host three solid days of workshops and other activities(scroll down for more details).

regular drum nights:

Third Monday of each month in New Buckenham

ring Aileen (01953 860110) for details

beginners' drum sessions:

a start-up group where there is plenty of time to become familiar with techniques and some of the more simple rhythms. Sue will run this at any time for 2 or more people.

our annual drum camp: drum camp 2018

During the summer we hold a weekend camp near Diss. This year we are using a new site as the pavilion at our old site has been condemned after a tree fell on it. Our new site is also near Diss, on a lovely secluded piece of land with roughly the same facilities that we have been used to. We will have covered areas for drumming if we need them, basic kitchen facilities and planty of space for camping or vans.

All drummers are welcome - from those who've never touched a drum before to those with many years of experience behind them. A variety of beginner and intermediate drumming and percussion workshops take place throughout this two day event and on Saturday evening we share a communal meal.
