An extraordinary experience : Percussion and dance holidays in Africa !

In „Yembeya“, a quarter out of the centre of the capital Conakry, lies Billy´s percussion school „KONATEKOUNDA“. There, we can get in contact with the Guineanculture in all its variety in a familiarly atmosphere. We´ll be lodging in two-bed rooms with mosquito nets. Food will be Guinean. Lessons will be held on three different levels:

- Beginner
- Medium
- Professionals.

We will be taught the traditional Malinke and Susu rhythms which are being played on three different bass drums and the djembe.

Besides Billy, other members of his family who also have been educated in traditional Malinke and Susu rhythms and also having years of teaching experience will teach us.

Lessons will take place 3 hours in the morning (percussion) and 2 hours in the afternoon (dance/percussion). On 2 days per week there will be no lessons. We can use this time to visit typical Guinean markets, islands „Room“ or „Soro“, wedding veil cascade or other special places. Also, we will spend 5 days in the village “Sangbarala” in Haute-Guinée.
