Moussé Dramé was born in the well-known Malian Griot family Diabaté-Dramé in Dakar, Senegal. Moussé started to play before he could walk as he grew up with his traditional music & dance family. At the age of 12 Moussé was professional djembé and doundoun player in the Malian tradition. He then studied and performed in various Senegalese ballets als the sabar, seourouba and krin. At the age of 15 he toured throughout Europe and his talent as a teacher and love for teaching was already obvious. He successfully followed his education as musician and teacher at Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Dakar. Since 1998 Moussé lives in Amsterdam and founded with his wife Turid Dramé the Djembé Dramé company. Moussé teaches over 15 student groups weekly in Holland and gives workshops throughout the Netherlands, Belgium, France, the US, Switzerland, Lithuania and China. His classes and workshops are known for the interaction of hard work, fun and enthusiasm between his students and himself. His dream is that the West African culture is spread and as he says: “I want to pass on the rhythms as I’ve learned by my master teachers in the villages to those who are interested to learn them”.
