With more than 35 years of drumming experience behind us we continue to devote ourselves to the study of technique, history and proper construction of these wonderful instruments.

To accomplish these goals we have travelled to Guinea to immerse ourselves in the rich culture and tradition of West African music, as well as studied all across North America with Master drummers/dancers from Guinea, West Africa.

The Goatworks is also proud to have hosted workshops with world re-nowned Master drummer, Famoudou Konate, on several occasions as well as working and performing with famous Master drummers such as M’Bemba Bangoura, Seickou Keita, and Mohamed Kalifa Kamara.

It is our mission to help spread the wonderful music of West Africa as well as support our teachers who have brought it to us.
