Summer Music School
Every summer a music school led by Master Drummer Kwasi Dunyo and other eminent teachers runs in the village. Students come from around the world to learn the traditional drumming, dancing and singing of the Ewe people. Daily lessons run for 2-4 hours, covering both recreational and religious musical styles. In a few short weeks students become proficient enough to perform with community drumming groups in Dagbamete and nearby villages. Students experience the culture, the food, and the people in an all-immersive manner.
Daily lesson rates:
USD 25 per person for 2 hours or USD 45 per person for 4 hours.
