Osumare Drums

Osumare means "Rainbow" in the Western Nigerian language YORUBA. OSUMARE DRUMS is a Percussion group that apart from performing original African traditional music, entertain their fans with dancing steps and interesting stories about the African lifestyles and tradition. An Osumare Drums concert is just like a trip round West Africa with sounds of drums and chants which are easy to sing along and dance. Osumare combines different original African musical instruments like Talking drums, Agogo, Sekere, Akuba, Balofon, Kora and Djembe to create the original sounds of Africa. The members of Osumare Drums are from Nigeria, Senegal, Cameroon, Ghana and Tobago. Osumare Drums have performed in concert halls all over Europe, at Art Exhibitions, Jazz Festivals and Musseums, including the famous Völkerkunde Museum in Germany.
