Latest News !!!!

Summer has arrived and this fantastic weather is making us look forward even more to the June Bank Holiday weekend and Cuisle Chorca Dhuibhne:Dingle’s Global Rhythm Festival (Jun 2- 4).

As a community-based not-for-profit festival we want as many people, adults and children to get involved and enjoy themselves over the weekend. There will be various drumming and dance workshops available for all levels and abilities, gigs and interactive drum circles.

The focus is on Fun!!!!

The festival tent returns for a second year and will be based in An Conair Bar beer garden, so in the (extremely, highly, impossibly) unlikely event of bad weather all events will go ahead as planned.

We’re introducing a new element to CCD this year on Saturday afternoon at 5pm following a performance by Different Skins there will be an improvisational Drum Jam session providing everyone with an opportunity to join in, lay down a few grooves and rhythms and enjoy themselves. So bring along your drum, bell, shaker or whatever and feel the global rhythm.

The full festival programme is available to see on this website – Right here – Right now.

Don’t miss out!!! Get your groove on this June Bank Holiday weekend.


This year’s festival highlights will include: Djembe workshops with Luis César Ewande   Bodhrán Workshops with Brian Fleming  evening showcase performance with Luis César Ewande, Brazilian dance party with Maracatu Ilu Brilhante and Splanc DCB – World beats DJ set with Ben Ó Faoláin and more to be announced.. Sooooooo  get ready to join in and enjoy the finest global rhythm festival happening in Ireland on this June Bank Holiday Weekend.


Louis-César Ewande will teach beginners and intermediate/advanced Djembe workshops and also perform at this year’s Dingle Global Rhythm Festival-CCD6 2-5th June 2017!!!

CCD6. dingle’s global rhythm festival returns 2-5 June 2017

Yes! We’ve moved.  CCD6 will be taking advantage of perhaps the ONLY bank holiday weekend in Dingle without a festival. So get your summer off to the perfect, percussive start and join us in West Kerry for the sixth successive, small but perfectly formed, global rhythm festival.

The programme is nearly finalised  and full details will be available here very soon. We have some great performers lined up who will also share their knowledge with those willing to improve their skills. Wipe the dust off your djembé, tighten that skin and head west….

You won’t regret it.
