INTRODUCTION TO DJEMBE AND DUNDUN CLASS (£ 4)

This class is ideal for absolute beginners to learn the basics of djembe accompaniments, arranged breaks and solo phrases, working as a group towards an overall understanding of the music. At the same time, we will learn the dundun patterns of the same rhythms with nice variations and breaks. DRUM HIRE: Private message Wadada Cymru to request a djembe drum (£ 1).

Luca Laudani is a Lecturer in Biomechanics at the Cardiff School of Sport and Health Sciences (Cardiff Metropolitan University). His research concerns neuromechanical aspects of movement in human ageing and following injury/surgery. His particular interest focuses on the neuromuscular interaction between posture and movement during whole-body or intersegmental motor acts. Luca completed his BSc, MSc and PhD degrees in Human Movement Science at the University of Catania in Italy while commuting with Glasgow at the Scottish School of Sport (University of Strathclyde) for over 2 years.
He first approached West African music with Bernd Geh by azdrumanddance.org in Phoenix, 2006. From 2007 to 2009, he regularly attended residential classes with Herman Kathan by TamTamMandengue in northen Italy and Germany. From 2009 to 2011, he moved to Rome and joined the Wamde ensamble of traditional percussion and dance. Luca has learnt traditional Guinean rhythms from Sourakhata and Lancey Dioubate (2010-2012), Sana and Dian Camara (2013-present) and Iya Sako (2015-present). Since 2014, he has been studying traditional Malian rhytms with the drumming and dancing professor Bifalo Kouyate.
