Heartbeat Rhythm Workshop presents AFRICAN DRUM & DANCE

With Robert Koffee Fugah

I am passionate about my arts and love to see children grow and develop their enjoyment also. This reputation has seen me teach daily lessons in the largest international school in Ghana over the past 7 years. There I often teach large groups of children from the age of 5 up to secondary school students.
Since making New Zealand home in August 2013 I've been very busy working locally in Central Otago and supporting drumming groups and running workshops across the country.
I thoroughly enjoy finding opportunities to share my love of African drumming and dance with kiwis

Jimi Dale is leader of Tamani and has been teaching Drum and Dance classes throughout New Zealand. He has a great passion for bringing people together to celebrate African music and dance. Recently he has become interested in the crossover of indigenous cultures in their understanding of life through ceremony, music, stories and dance
