The Friday Night Drummers are a group of musicians with a love for West African traditional rhythms and a strong desire to present this genre to audiences everywhere.
With a dad and daughters at the core, FND is on a journey of continuous learning in an effort to properly represent the rich culture from which the music was born.
With the distinction of also being musicians on Mohamed Diaby’s Atebayilla DVD and CD, the core of FND openly shares their skills with every student of the music.
