Drums are likely the oldest form of musical instrument known to mankind. So old in fact, that researchers from the National Academy of Science suggested that drumming is part-and-parcel to our species- other primates also drum on objects to communicate.

DrumConnection (Boston, MA) links students with a very specific part of our human heritage- the djembe drum music of Guinea, Mali, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso. Guinea is just a small nation on the west coast of Africa yet it looms large on the world stage. DrumConnection offers a unique experience into the rhythms of the continent.

Our close ties to Guinea and The Gambia, West Africa and in association with Famoudou Konate, Mamady Keita and Mamady ‘Wadaba’ Kourouma, Sayon Camara, Issa Coulibaly, Moussa Traore and Nansady Keita we bring you a rich heritage from the Homeland, the birthplace of the drums. Join us!
