ABOUT THIS EVENT

This 2-hour drumming session will have you feeling connected as a tribe, spiritually liberated through in-the-moment music making and rhythmically skilled up on the West African Djembe (world’s most popular hand drum) & Dundun (stick and bell bass drums).

ALL drums provided, no need to bring your own.

This event is for everyone, including those who have never touched a drum. It is also suitable for those with experience wanting to learn new rhythms and arrangements.

This workshop will be led by well-known Perth musician Martin Phillips. Martin started playing drums at age 12. He embraced African styles and rhythms whilst playing with the Sundiata Marimba Band (5 yrs). Martin has studied music in Zimbabwe and from 1997-2001 was a part of the award-winning African Music Congress. He currently plays with drum and marimba ensemble Village Vibes.  Martin has been hosting drumming workshops & circles for 20 years.

Join us for a Sunday morning of fun, freedom and excitement this August.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

MARTIN PHILLIPS

Musician

Martin has been playing drums in his home town of Perth since he was 12 years old. He established, whilst in Art School, ‘The Childlike Primitives’ 1987-1992 a seminal experimental folk rock band.

Soon after, Martin helped create ‘Initiation Studios’ from 1990 -1995, an underground art space and legendary DIY recording studio in Perth.

He was hungry for more percussion skills and embraced African styles and rhythms while playing Marimba and percussion in the much loved and nationally acclaimed Sundiata Marimba Band for 5 years, 1990-1996.

Later, after coming back from a musical study tour of Zimbabwe, he joined the award winning African Music Congress (1997-2001). Martin is praised for his solid knowledge and talent as one of Perth best drum kit and dun dun players (African bass drums) performing over the years with African drum ensemble, Deredjeff Dubar (1995-2003), Mukwa Marimba Band, now with thundering dynamic, drum and marimba ensemble Village Vibes (2010-present) and plays drumkit in local trio, South West State.
