    Saturday, January 22nd, Noon til 4:30P.M. drumming workshop with Jeremy Crytzer. The workshop on Dec 4th, was so well received, that we are going to do a 2nd round with Jeremy. Lots of fun, great instruction, from a professional West African drummer, all for a free-will offering:
    From Joe Lorincz:    We will be learning rhythms from Guinea and Mali , West Africa , in addition to djembe parts we will also have a chance to learn doundounba parts as well so if you have a doundounba bring it. Some extra drums will be available, but if you have a drum bring it.
    Jeremy Crytzer: Learn rhythms from Guinea and Mali , West Africa , on djembe and doun douns with Jeremy Crytzer. Jeremy has studied West African drumming for over 21 years with many master teachers including Karamba Dioubate, Abdoul Doumbia, Yaya Diallo, Mamady Keita, Mbemba Bangoura, and others. He has performed all over the country and facilitated workshops with many of the African masters with whom he studied and played. He has been teaching drum classes since 1999, previously in Tucson , Arizona , and is considered a patient and encouraging but rigorous teacher. Thanks, Joe Lorincz
   Steve's Note: We are asking people to bring a potluck dish to pass, to provide for refreshments during the workshop. This is optional. Hope to see you all there!
