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!

N’Faly Kouyaté

N’Faly Kouyaté’s dexterity and elegance in impassioned playing the kora made him known as “Jimi Hendrix of the kora”. The Guinean griot and member of Peter Gabriel’s project Afro Celt Sound System is now working on his next album.

 

Kouyaté, two times Grammy-nominated, winner of a golden disc, founded his own group in 1996: Dunyakan, “voice of the world”. N’Faly Kouyaté has played amongst others for the Olympic Games in Athens and the wife of Nelson Mandela.
