Event Details

We haver another awesome retreat with Master Griot Epizo Bangoura.

Join us at the beautiful Kum Ba Yah Girl Guides Camp nestled in the rainforests of Mt Keira near Wollongong for a weekend of Kora, drumming and dance workshops.

For the first time in Australia we will be holding group Kora workshops on Jan 13th and 14th.

Kum Ba Yah is set in tranquil bush land, close to the many facilities and beaches Wollongong has to offer, yet in a secluded escarpment location. This unique and extensive site has both indoor and outdoor camping areas, with areas for small groups and plenty of space for large camps.


The full retreat price includes all tuition, live gigs, accomodation and food.
