World Music Residency with
The Dhol Foundation
West Somerset

West Somerset is still ringing from the sound of The Dhol Foundation’s visit!
The world music residency with Actiontrack, supported by  Sound Foundation Somerset Music , the county's music education hub, saw The Dhol Foundation tour around West Somerset primary and secondary schools teaching the students about the Dhol drum.

Band members Johnny and Jo Kalsi taught stimulating workshops that introduced participants to a new culture and new music traditions.

The Dhol drum is a traditional Punjabi drum that the Dhol Foundation have made their own.

They work with electronics as well as other music traditions. Their sound is huge and it was a huge thrill to bring them to Somerset.

To date other succesful residencies have taken place across the county with Afriquoi and The Turbans with more planned for the future

Thank you for the excellent photos. See them all here!
