The fourth installment of the SANKOFA Series is here! Join KTDC Musical Director Kumasi Allen and Ton Ko-Thi Children’s Performing Ensemble members Royce Clinton and Judah Gowie for DrumTalk, a djembe ensemble curriculum class inspired by the methods & techniques of master musician Mor Thiam. Kumasi will also discuss the importance of carrying the tradition of mentorship provided to him to the next generation of musicians.
