Sayon is a West African drumming master with the rare gifts of kindness, emotional warmth, and clarity-of-purpose. He lovingly shares the rich culture of the drum and the music and song from the Sankaran region of Guinea. With an amazing 14 year apprenticeship to world-renowned Famoudou Konate, during which Sayon was a member of Famoudou’s Hamana Foli Kan ensemble along with Billy Konate, Nansady Keita, and others, Sayon is honored to think of Famoudou as his drum father. Sayon's impeccable sense of musical time, his mastery of Guinean melody on dunun, and his sound on the djembe that is as clear as a bell, make him an excellent teacher for advanced and beginning students alike.
