Drumming is a powerful, potent and vital force that Drumroots has harnessed for education and entertainment, for self-expression and self-discovery. So whether you’re enjoying Drumroots for purpose or pleasure, whether you’re participating or listening, let Drumroots music steal into your soul, create energy – put a smile on your face and joy in your heart!

Drum Workshops

Based in Manchester, but operating nationwide and abroad, Drumroots is a drumming collective that works closely with local communities, in education and in corporate development. In all these areas, we use the positive power of drumming workshops to deliver real benefits to individuals and groups of widely diverse ages and backgrounds.

Drumming Performers

In addition, Drumroots performs extensively as the celebrated drumming and dance group Tanante, staging spectacular and colourful performances at concerts and clubs, festivals and workshops.

Traditional West African Rhythms

Comprising English and African musicians, Drumroots and Tanante are founded on the drumming and dance traditions of Guinea in West Africa. Focusing on the djembe, we also play other drums and ethnic instruments. Our repertoire embraces not only Guinea, but the whole West African region, celebrating its culture and music in joyous rhythms and electrifying performance.
