From 8:30 pm on the Friday night the programme begins and you are welcome at Zonnewende from that time onwards. During the weekend we have the exclusive use of many spaces. There are living rooms where you can chill and talk and we have a hall where we will have our party nights (think music, dance, drinks and lots of craic). The hall (where the party nights will be) is located in the woods, a bit away from the sleeping quarters. The first party is on Friday night. So as soon as you have settled in you can come over for a drink.
The workshops are on Saturday and Sunday in the mornings and afternoons. You will have about 8 hours of class in total. Your workshops will be given by the same teacher both days. That way we can really get into the matter and the rhythms or dances will stick properly. We have coffee and tea in between and meals are served three times a day on Saturday and two times on Sunday. All of this, as are the drinks at night, are included in the weekend price.
Wanna go for a walk? Not a problem. The accommodation is located in the woods with loads of lovely walking opportunities.
No experience is required to participate in the Tuka Tuka Weekend. We have a djembé group for every level. One for beginners and slightly advanced, one for advanced and one for far advanced musicians. Please give us an accurate description of your level and experience wherever requested on the registration form so we can place you in the right group.
Levels in the other workshops:
During the dance and doundoun workshops all levels are in the same group. Differences in experience will be countered by inserting varying challenges.
With Ngoni you must have basic mastery of the instrument, here too the challenges are adjusted depending on your level.
Please note that instruments are not included in any of the workshops, but can be rented for some workshops. More information on the Practical info page.
