Our Story

Djabot - meaning "Family" in Wolof from Senegal, West Africa.

Djabot are a community band based in the beautiful Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK. The group was formed in 1998 with Noel Gueye - their first Master Drummer, and are now led by fantastic master drummer 'Oumar Sagna' from Senegal, West Africa.

Djabot are a group of wonderful friendly people, who have a passion for African drumming. They have gained much experience of percussion and continue to enjoy mastering their percussive instruments whilst sharing  their knowledge through tuition, vocals and performance to their audience.

Djabot are always available for Carnivals, Festivals, Fetes, Private Parties, Voluntary Groups, Charity Events and Drumming Workshops.

Performances have inspired, enthused, and motivated people of all ages and abilities to come forward and 'have a go'.

Djabot will continue enjoying this fabulous journey, and will do so for many times ahead.

Since Djabot began in the year 1998, the group have established themselves as a highly professional outfit within the Forest of Dean and surrounding areas. A standard of excellence that has provided the impetus for them to grow as a local community band they are today.
