    In his homeland of Guinea, he performs with the amazing, Merveilles De Guineé - one of the countries most revered, traditional drum & dance companys. He's from the village, Dixxin, in Conakry - known to produce a lineage of some of the country's most talented artists!

    Lara met Fassa on her '04 solo trip to Guinea. They became fast friends and became in integral part of our music staff on consecutive trips. A true gentleman and great artiste!

    Don't miss this amazing opportunity to learn Guinea Djembe from a young master artiste whose joy for his instrument is infectious.
