S. Manan Ajimah, from northern Ghana, is recognised to be an authentic master djembefola and teacher of traditional West African percussion. He has been featured on national television in the UK as well as in local news and websites. Through visits and even on the telephone to his home country, and through his travels and contacts, he keeps in touch with traditional rhythms from various regions. He also fuses traditional rhythms to create new rhythms, making the joy of djembe accessible to all.
His passion for playing and teaching djembe and sharing his traditional knowledge has been an inspiration for so many who have encountered him – many of whom remain in contact years after first discovering him in Cape Town or elsewhere.
