For more info about Kafolike
Many of our students have raised the bar and gone on to performing with major companies in Chicago and Kansas City, MO. We are very proud of the achievements that our students have attained. A testimony that the hard work pays off.
Our students are given an intense course into the life of the djembe and the history that embodies its culture. Each student is treated as a family member and pushed to be the best at the core. The Kafolike curriculum is full of exercises, rudiments, history, folklore, technique, promise and a student portal. Kafolike students are awarded certificates of completion after each semester, which always feels great to be recognized and honored.
The purpose of getting a Kafolike Teacher Certificate is to make certain that the teacher has knowledge of and understands the principles of the rhythms and its internalized functions. The certification process tests the educator’s knowledge and professional readiness to teach under the Kafolike curriculum. Generally, a Kafolike teacher will study with and assist the senior Professor for a period of time to become ready to either open their own school or become the official Assistant/Co-Professor of a school.
Kafolike Chicago is the 1st school created by Sekou Conde. This school has been in existence since 2013.
Kafolike KC MO is a recently open institution founded by Sekou Conde to further the reach of the knowledge and training of the Mandingue Djembe orchestra.
