26 Nov Negunya at VDON Festival 2019
On 24 November, there was a great performance in Delft and played Negunya at VDON Festival 2019 during the annual Djembé Festival organised by the Association for Djembe Education (VDON). For the third time, I gave a balafon workshop there, this time for 14 participants combined with percussion support and singing. Lesson groups of teachers could present themselves at the end of the afternoon and the lesson group in Uithoorn, or Negunya-Balafon, saw an opportunity to do a presentation there. We performed there with the songs: Senalé Malin, Tyowa Bayo, a N’Goni piece and a medly of Awa Dabolé-Bo Yaro (see the rhythm page to study these rhythms).
