Djembe Singapore Club

Djembe Singapore Club

We are a community of djembe drumming enthusiasts who drum away happily every Saturday!

Founded by TTM Djembe Academy Senior Certified Teacher Kelvin Kew, we learn about traditional African rhythms and drum songs, as well as the beautiful culture and history behind these music. More than that, we find joy in the connection we build with one another through drumming, performing and progressing together!
