Percussion Teacher, Seydou Kone
Meet Seydou Koné, percussion teacher at l'Ecole de Musique de Kirina. Seydou Koné is a master djembé player who lives in a village located outside of Kirina. He assists Mahamadou Diabaté with the percussion classes, and leads the percussion band that plays for each dance class at the school. Twice a week, Seydou rides 9 miles on his bike to teach at the school and share his knowledge with our students. His enthusiastic and creative teaching style is a joy to the students, as attendance is through the roof - very few students miss their djembé class. He is a valuable and exceptional member of both the program team in Kirina, Mali and the PFC family.
