Dundun Dance Event - April 14
Tickets now available
Do you love to move to the beat of live drumming? Dundun Dance is a unique opportunity to learn ancient drumming dances that originated from the Baga women of Guinea, West Africa.
Dunduns are large cylindrical bass drums played with sticks. When played these drums offer the medicine of connecting to your own personal strength and presence. They can also help us to invite healing rhythms and joy into our lives.
Our April 14 Event is an opportunity to unleash your inner dancer and drummer in a welcoming, supportive and nourishing environment. You can come do deep inner work, or simply enjoy experiencing the vitality of communal drum and dance.
Stay tuned for our upcoming Summer Djembe & Dundun Dance One-Day Retreat!
Attuning to the energies of Spring on the beautiful property of Shaw Percussion...
As Spring prepares to sing her song, new energies are stirring and sprouting in the Earth and within us. Seeds of deep desires and soul visions seek the nourishment that they need to come to fruition.
This time is ripe for reflection and integration of Winter's lessons. As we clear stagnant energies with the Power of Dundun Dance, space is created for new seeds to blossom.
Light refreshments and drum rental included.

Kemoko Sano introduced Dundun Dance to the United States over 10 years ago. Through his choreography with internationally performing groups, Les Merveilles De Guinee and Les Ballets Africains. Dundun Dabce became more know in the USA and beyond.
I’ve been blessed to have studied Dundun dance in Guinea, West Africa with M'Bemba Bangoura, and Mr. Kemoko Sano’s son, Seiku Sano, current director of Les Merveilles. For over 4 years I studied and peformed Dundun Dance with Master Drummer, Mohammed Diaby in his company Mandingue Foli Kan Don and Master Dancer Sani Abu in his company Ijo Vudu Dance Co.
My passion and respect for West African drum & dance led me to live in West Africa, so I could eat, sleep and breathe the rhythms. The result was deep healing, dear friendships and activation of my purpose. It is with great respect and honor that I share these ancient drumming dances.
