The Djembabes are an all-women drumming group from Southampton, UK who meet at The Art House, Southampton.

The Djembabes number somewhere between 6 & 30 drummers, the members change frequently and new people are very welcome!We play mainly West African drums, but take our inspiration from just about anywhere – including African rhythms, Western music and even Japanese Taiko.
We have the utmost respect for these cultural traditions and honour the 265118_246720178671907_5294027_nsource of our music, whilst bringing our own individual cultures and imagination to the music we make.
Join us for our regular drum circles or come along and be a performer!
