Group Description

Sehwé Village Percussion is a community that gathers to celebrate its love of West African rhythms and songs. Sehwé (“happiness” in Susu language) also seeks to be an intentionally multi-ethnic group who hopes to foster diversity, inclusion and understanding through sharing the experience of West Africa’s rich drumming tradition. We invite everyone to join us, including beginner drummers and non-drummers, and ask only that you be interested in learning, playing, singing and occasionally performing West African-inspired music.

We meet at Jazzercise Decatur from 7:30-9:00.
The address of Jazzercise Decatur is

114 New St. Suite A
Decatur, GA 30030

The group is led by Aly Camara, master drummer from Guinea, West Africa, and the suggested donation is $20 for classes that Aly teaches (twice per month). Your first class with Aly is free! The remaining Thursdays ($15 ea) are devoted to reviewing previous material, rehearsing for upcoming performances and experimenting with the addition of other traditional and non-traditional instruments. We have loaner instruments to use free of charge. Of course, dancers are also invited and dancing is always encouraged!
For more information, see www.myspace.com/sehwevillage, www.mytessitura.com, or www.groups.yahoo.com/group/sehwevillage, or call (404) 370-1019.
