Biography

Boubacar Gaye has been delighting Melbourne with his drumming talents for over 5 years now.

Bouba’s passion for the djembe ( and the dun for that matter) is rare and his enthusiasm to share his knowledge with students a blessing to all that meet his path.

Bouba first laid his hands on a drum in Senegal at the budding age of 14. Inspired by the musical mentors around him he became a member of the infamous Mama Afrika. Under the guidance of ballet professor Joseph-Raphael Bouschanzl, Bouba’s skills and passion grew quickly and soon he was also a member of the renowned Foret Sacre Ballet. In 1997 Bouba ventured to Europe and then onto Japan where he established himself as a leading African percussionists. With an energy and peace of mind that resonates from deep within – Bouba speaks a thousand words with his drum.

Bouba’s is perfect for school workshops, or Team Building days, Corporate Workshops, Birthday parties or Weddings. He can cater for up to 100 people to play the drums.
He can perform as a solo or can provide up to 5 people in full costume. The group includes drummers, dancers and a range of other African instruments including djembe, conga, dun dun, balafon (like a wooden xylaphone) and singing.
