Mohamed Gueye is a West African percussionist based in London. Born into a large griot family of drummers from Dakar in Senegal, Mohamed learnt the Sabar and Djembe drum with his father and grandfather from the age of 5 and has been playing professionally since the age of 15.
Passed down to him by his ancestors, Mohamed has a detailed understanding of Sabar rhythms and the history of Senegalese culture. Alongside this, Mohamed has had a long love affair with the Djembe drum and is highly sought after for his explosive performances and patient teaching.
He has performed at festivals across the UK including Womad, African Drum Village, Drum Camp, Africa Oye and BEATS Cornwall with African stars such as Baaba Maal, Carlou D, Aida Samb and Africa Express.
We are very pleased to invite him back once again to teach Sabar at The World Music Workshop festival. A very high quality teacher who will complement workshops given by our other Sabar maestro Modou Diouf.
