Originally from The Gambia, the ‘Smiling Coast’ of West Africa, King has spent the past 30 years travelling Australia and the wider world, teaching his culture and his music to young and old. King’s workshops combine traditional hand drumming with elements of west African song and movement and have delighted participants around the globe!
With emphasis on the body/ kinaesthetic and musical / rhythmic intelligences, King believes “that anyone with two hands can pick up drumming techniques.”
Designed to engage and entertain participants of all ages, abilities and backgrounds these hands-on percussion
workshops enable participants to experience the pulsating rhythms and instruments of West Africa for themselves.
