Tanante means "Peace only!" in the Mandinka language and is the response to the greeting: "Cor tanante?" to which the reply is "Tanante!"
Since 2003, the Drumroots performance group, Tanante, has performed to diverse audiences throughout the UK and beyond. Trained by master drummers in West Africa and the UK, Tanante regularly perform with Djembe folas (drumming masters) Iya Sako (Guinea) and Sidiki Dembele (Ivory coast), high-energy Senegalese dancers, Sens Sagna and Diene Sagna and appear with other guest African musicians playing flutes, koras (harps) and balalfons (xylophones).
Performing Djembe and Dundun drums, melodious instrument and dance; Tanante's high energy performances are incredibly exciting and invite dance and audience participation. Through their energy, abilities and spectacular showmanship Tanante have proved to be incredibly popular with delighted audiences at concerts, weddings, festivals, workshops and courses.
