wazza with djembe african drumMulti-talented drummer extraordinaire

When it comes to drumming, Warren (artist name - Wazza) is the man! "Dun dun" is the African name for a barrel shaped bass drum that is played horizontally or vertically with sticks and often accompanied with a bell, played with the other hand. Although the duns are his speciality, Wazza performs in nearly every african (and less african!) group or band there is all around Perth... You name the percussion instrument, he can probably play it =) He always supports and promotes Afrotonic and we do the same for him! He drums avery Tuesday for Roanne's african dance class in north Fremantle and alternates Fridays and Sundays at the other 2 class venues. For more information, contact Wazza on 0416 216 477 or harvey2hands@gmail.com
