Djembe Forte are a group of passionate musicians who love West African Drum and Dance rhythms, passing on their learning from their Master/Teacher Mohamed ‘Bangourake’ Bangoura. The rhythms they share represent village life. One cannot be sad or depressed when they get involved with African drum and dance rhythms as its Music for the Soul.
January 2018 saw Rob, who is the Lead Drummer, visit West Africa for the third time attending Mohameds Drum and Dance study tour.
