Welcome to Super Mande Percussion – African Drumming Academy & Performance

Weddings & Receptions

Weddings are a very important tradition of Mali culture.  

The djembe drum is a primary instrument of celebration, it is symbolic of the union of man and woman, it is by virtue an exchange of vows, accepting the good and bad of each other, symbolising the union and the new start in your life with the responsibilities that are a part of marriage.  As a celebration, it is also a time where the people are obliged to be happy for the celebration to be a success.  When everybody is happy, it is truly a day to remember.
