West Somerset is still ringing from the sound of The Dhol Foundation ’s visit in early 2016! 

The world music residency with Actiontrack, supported by the Sound Foundation Somerset Music 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.

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