Balafon meeting 18 November with Youssouf Keita

A Balafon Meeting will be held in Tilburg on Saturday 18 November for (former) students and other interested parties. Among other things, Youssouf will work on 'Yogolo Mansa'. You can already prepare for this with a video lesson on the site. 10.30 - 16.00. Followed by a chat and something to eat at my place. € 40,= for this day.

Studytrip to Ivorycoast 13 January - 3 February

This winter I am going to the Ivory Coast for a balafon workshop with Youssouf, his brother Seydou and other local teachers. It's in Grand Bassam; a small hotel, 15 minutes' walk from the beach. 10 days, 5 hours of lessons a day. Five people are already joining. 'Are you coming too?'

Utamaduni support Yiri Kan with donation

After my participation in the African Camp, I understood that Utamaduni also supports small initiatives in Africa. In consultation with Youssouf, I drew up an application. We received almost 1,000 euros!!! Building work will now start soon ... read more on my blog ...
