"Hi! I was meant to contact and tell you how brilliant the guys were.
They really added to the atmosphere on the day and lots of people were asking where we got them from? I will definitely be recommending them to others. Thanks so much". Melissa.

"Being a mediocre student of drumming from Northern California and finding myself in London for insurance meetings, I googled 'African drumming London' on a whim. Dia's website popped up, and we easily arranged a meet-up. What a great lesson! Got to learn a bit about the West African drumming tradition and a terrific new rhythm, break, and call. What fun! Dia's not only one fantastic drummer, but also very warm and welcoming - a real pleasure to learn from and drum with. A true highlight of my week in London. I'll be back!" Sarah.
"Many thanks to Dia for an excellent drumming session at our Refugee Drop In party in November 2016 The atmosphere was great and everyone participated including the youngest children who danced in the middle of the circle of 50 participants and played percussion. It was an inclusive and uplifting experience and brought much joy to all of us. Dia has a warm and vibrant personality and made sure we all had great fun and left with a smile". A, North Western Reform Synagogue
“I want to thank Dia for such a fun and insightful session. I really enjoyed myself and loved Dia’s enthusiasm and passion for what he does. I felt so much better and happier after the session and the overall process was therapeutic and fun. I would genuinely love to attend again and want to say thank you for such a good time.” Shehidi,
