Djembe Yaru, Kalamazoo Michigan's West Afrikan drum and dance group was founded in 2007 by Nathaniel Waller. We are a group of performers and teachers dedicated to the expression of traditional and modern West Afrikan music and dance. We have blended the tradition of West African music and dance and fused it with modern music and culture. We are known to keep the spirit and traditions of West African music alive while continuing to grow in the world we live in today. We have been performing and teaching West African music for over 15 years. Traveling world wide sharing our traditions, music and vision with the world is our passion and we can not wait to share it with you.
