Senegal and Gambia trip - 12/12/16

I'm just back from a fantastic trip to Senegal and Gambia learning balafon (and a bit of gongo and konkonyi!) with the amazing Moussa Sylla of Toumaranke. http://www.toumaranke.com

We learnt balafon parts for Djolé, Sorsonet, Maradi and Mané, as well as having a go at a few gongo rhythms and learning the basic techqnieus of the konkonyi. We had a lot of fun jamming too - I'll upload a few videos to youtube soon... I've got loads of practice to do now, and I'm sure I'll be back there again for more in the near future!
