Our performance troupe are available for fêtes, garden parties, pubs, weddings, birthday parties and events. We can also combine a performance with a workshop - bringing spare drums and getting folk up to join in with us. Most people get a real buzz out of having a go! In return we ask for a minimum donation to our drum fund - for the maintenance and upkeep of our drums. We also use this fund to buy new drums for the group. For certain causes and charities we may play for just travelling expenses - careful consideration will be given to each application. Kontaani are a very laid back, happy troupe of drummers who's emphasis is on having fun - we play traditional West African rhythms with our own unique twist - if you would prefer to have a professional authentic troupe of African drummers we can point you in the right direction. We have many friends who are master drummers including our own tutors from Drumroots who's performance troupe TANANTE are absolutely amazing!

Drum tuning and re-skinning - we can instruct you on how to tune your own djembe and also put you in touch with master craftsmen for re-skinning and overhauling

Thinking of buying a drum? Our friends at Drumroots have some amazing brand new pro drums for sale - superb quality professional djembes.
