Some 20 people enjoyed the drumming workshop last Sat. sponsored by Valemount Arts and Cultural Society. The” djembe” drums were handmade by craftspeople in Ghana. A beautiful toned drum, with a wide variety of sounds, the djembe has a goatskin drumhead and a carved mahogany body. VACS was thankful to have a Granville Johnson, who has played this drum for over 35 years, to teach and inspire us.
