Explore African drum and dance together with your students, colleagues, friends and family!

Master drummer and dancer Fatawu Sayibu offers a variety of customized drum and dance workshops for schools, community groups, private parties, and more.


Examples of workshops include drum technique and rhythm, dance and/or both.  Fatawu can also combine a workshop with a performance for students to see professional drummers and dancers bring to life West African culture through movement and rhythm. This experience deepens students’ understanding of the relationship between the drumming, dancing, singing and cultural heritage.


Workshops can range from 30 minutes to multiple day residencies. Please contact Fatawu at fatawu@tiyumba.com or by phone at 612-229-6614 with a workshop request or for more information.
