WELCOME TO DGAS
drumming and percussion for women
DGAS is a group of women who make music with djembés (African hand drums) and other percussion instruments. We run drumming afternoons and evenings for women who are interested in learning more about rhythm or just want to hit that groove for a while. We also hold an annual weekend camp where we host two days of workshops in Burston (scroll down for more details).

During the summer we hold a weekend camp at Burston Cricket Pavilion, near Diss. All drummers are welcome - from those who've never touched a drum before to those with many years of experience behind them. A variety of beginner and intermediate drumming and percussion workshops take place throughout this two day event and on Saturday evening we share a communal meal.
