African Drumming Performance & Workshop at Southbank Centre

One-drum is a collaborative ensemble of professional performers, artists and teachers from diverse backgrounds, committed to creating inclusive, engaging work that uses cultural expression as a catalyst to change perceptions.

In this workshop, Master Drummer Abass Dodoo and his One-Drum team of facilitators will provide an unforgettable interactive authentic African drumming experience for all ages and abilities.

Abass Dodoo was born in Nsawam (a town in south Ghana), into a famous family of drummers. At the age of 6yrs, he was inspired by his grandmother “Abiba Okailey Ablah”, the mother of the Ghanaian famous master drummer, Mustapha Tettey Addy,” as she taught him drumming by singing traditional rhythms.
