Tradition

The world of rhythm and dance in Senegal stands in the long tradition of the various local tribes, like Wolof- and Serere people. Every ceremony and all major changes in the lives of the people were accompanied by Sabar and Djembé music, dance and singing. The knowledge about and responsibilties for the tradition was the dedicated area of the griots, families of musicians and storytellers. We learned this allready on a very young age, playing with older brothers, uncles and nephews. The house of Sing-Sing Rythmes was the place where we were initiated and finally became masters of djembé, sabar and doundoun.

Diop Percu Ibra Fall People

We travelled around in Africa, Europe and the US with the "Ballet National de Senegal" and other famous groups. Living in Europe and in the US creates a unique opportunity for us to involve the interested people in our tradition.

The name "Diop Percu" was created from the family name Diop and the abbreviation of Percussion. Ibra Fall People comes from the people the family belongs to. With Diop Percu you get Africa, energy, sun and warmth, culture and atmosphere, rhythm and dynamics.
