Bringing the beat

Mohamed Camara’s extensive repertoire of rhythms and songs, developed under the guidance of internationally renowned Guinean master drummer Ton Ton Sylla, has seen him become an in-demand teacher and traditional Guinean musical performer in both Australia and Africa.

Mohamed joins forces with Melbourne percussionist Anna Camara, who, having completed an Honours research paper on the traditional Guinean and Western repertoire percussion pedagogies, has developed a unique understanding of the different teaching methods and their benefits.

Mohamed’s extensive understanding of Guinean music and culture, together with Anna’s knowledge and experience of both Western and Guinean percussion traditions, Rhythm of Life provide a complete educational and cultural experience.
