African Drumming Gigs & Events in Melbourne


West African Drummers, Dancers and Musicians from Mali to Melbourne and Beyond!

 West African drummers

In the Mande culture, the djembe drum is a significant instrument of celebration.  The djembe drum is heard in most celebrations of one's life:

  • Weddings
  • Baptisms
  • Harvests
  • Circumcisions
  • Welcoming ceremonies
  • Other parties and celebrations.

That is why it carries on its tradition throughout time, with a rhythmical representation of each happening in the cultural life of the present world.  Mady cannot emphasise enough the meaning of the djembe drum as an instrument and as a word, bringing people together to unite in friendship.

In Australia, Mady has continued the Mande traditions with his band Super Mande Percussion entertaining many music enthusiasts in pubs, clubs and open air events. 

Mady is now one of Australia's finest exponents of West African drumming, music and culture.

Super Mande Percussion is available to offer music performances and African drumming for schools, festivals, weddings, baptisms, parties and other social functions, celebrations and special social events.  It is the music of the earth.  Come and celebrate with us in the infectious rhythms of Mande or West African music.

What Others Are Saying:

  • "I just saw this African drumming band at Moomba. They were SO GOOD. I LOVE African drumming and dancing. There's something wild and free about it. I couldn't help but stop and dance to their music. I think I will follow them at their gigs. Maybe it's good for me to dance to wild drumming once in a while. I've had a djembe drum for years.(Music lover)
