Welcome to GIWAYEN MATA

Powerful! describes the magnificent experience of seeing the elephant women of GIWAYEN MATA on stage playing instruments once held sacred only for initiated priests. Continuing the rich tradition of African drumming and African dance, GIWAYEN MATA articulates traditional West African rhythms on djembe, sangban, kenkeni, dununba drums and sekere. To the delight of our audiences and the pleasure of our ancestors we perform a repertoire filled with original and inspired works. Enjoy all this as you explore GIWAYEN MATA.
