I do! If you don’t believe me, click here, here or here!


I was therefore delighted to discover a new djembe group just up the road in Bedford. The group meets from 7:00-10:00pm on Fridays (but may be changing to Tuesdays soon) and is run by the more than capable hands of expert percussionist and teacher Malcolm Smith. Here’s Malcolm in action:


And here’s his site, where you can find out more. Do you live in Bedfordshire? Do you enjoy drumming? Would you like to find out more about how music is made in another culture of the world? If so, come along to Malcolm’s wonderful drumming group.

Failing that, you could always try Lamin Jassays on line djembe lessons. See him in action here. However, I still think there’s nothing quite like the real thing; the camaraderie and rhythmic interaction which take place when a group are drumming together is hard to equal! In fact, Malcolm lists the many physical and emotional benefits of African drumming here.

So, what are you waiting for? Get drumming!
