BACKGROUND 

In many countries and especially in Africa, the women haven’t been allowed to play the Drum or Koura instrument, even though it was a woman who discovered and made the first instrument for her hyperactive cousin to try to engage, entertain and distract him as he suffered from what is now recognised as ADHD.

The boy loved and enjoyed the sounds that the instruments made when he played, as well as the chants that his Aunt chanted to the Drumbeats and the charm of the Koura everyday.

With the long practices alongside the buzz of the instruments the boy became very well known in his village and distance villages .Nobody really knew anything about the woman behind the instruments creation, or the joy, relief, freedom and satisfaction she got from being able to find ways to help her long suffering cousin, until now.
