On Monday Sep 1, and Thursday Sep 4, Son of Drum was honoured and stoked to present a couple of special drumming workshops provided by Djulz Chambers from the misty Dandenong Mountains east of Melbourne in Victoria. Djulz has been drumming since 2004 and spent two years learning under master djembe and dunun players in Mali and Burkina Faso, West Africa. During the workshops, Djulz taught the students a Malian rhythm called Didadi, which is traditionally a rhythm for young people to get together and have fun! It literally means “honey & honey,” as it’s sweet getting together and having an open heart and mind toward each other. Thanks to Djulz and the Mullumbimby Scout Hall for gracing us with these sessions. We’ll see you back here in the Byron Shire soon!
