Ever wanted to come to one of our African drumming gigs but can't quite make it out until midnight? Well here is your opportunity to see us perform at 10 in the morning! Drumroots are proud to announce that we have been invited to Eatock primary school in Westhoughton, Bolton for their special African Beats launch event on Saturday 3rd February. We will be putting on an extra special performance with our professional drumming group 'Tanante'. Not only will Tanante be featuring Iya Sako our master drummer from Guinea but we will also be inviting a surprise special guest all the way from East Africa too!
The Drumroots performance group, Tanante will be joining our good friends from Global Grooves on Sunday 14th January at the Vale in Mossley, to perform for a special Charity fundraising day of amazing West African Percussion workshops.
Here at Drumroots we are proud to announce that we have another brand new stock of top quality, professional, African djembe drums that have just arrived here from Guinea that are now available to buy. As well as our top of the range goat skin djembes, we have now introduced some truly awesome sounding calf skin djembes. All these drums are made of top quality hardwoods, beautifully carved and decorated and have been skinned with supreme skill and attention to detail by our colleagues in Conakry, Guinea.
Yes! That's right folks! Since the birthday reunion you've begged us for more, and we had no choice but to listen! So we're going back to the Attic (aka The Zombie Shack) for a winter solstice party ina Drum Music style! We invite you to come together again and join us back at our old home with our West African drumming performance group 'Tanante' playing a powerful and high energy set and all the resident DJs' spinning some of those classic tracks from back in the day.

Early in the autumn, The British Council in Sudan asked Drumroots to be a part of The Festival of the Nile. West Africa has been so successful in popularising it's traditional music around the world and our friend from the British Council, Mustafa, wanted to use this success as an inspiring example to encourage the youth of Sudan to engage with their cultural roots. Although we knew that we would be performing and leading workshops to celebrate traditional African music, little did we know what incredible experiences were in store for us during the week ahead.
