Adama Daou

Balafon classes 

Adama Daou is a Malian musician who developed his learning of African drums (djembe, dumdum, calabash and balafon) by participating to traditional ceremonies during his childhood. In addition to touring across Europe, Canada and the United States, Adama regularly hosts African percussion & dance classes and workshops. Thanks to a training in leisure & youth activities, he also acts as a coach in schools and as a social-cultural worker with young offenders.

Based in Montreal since 2011, Adama Daou is constantly guided by a strong desire to introduce Malian percussions to the public while creating musical projects with artists from different horizons, developing percussion training workshops, and participating to the development of sociocultural actions based on music.
