​​M’Bemba Bangoura has traveled the world as a performer and teacher of the djembe drum, and is revered the world over, for his high level of mastery. As a native of Guinea, West Africa, M’Bemba began playing the djembe at the young age of seven. By the age of twenty-one, he was acclaimed as a master drummer and was invited to play for Ballet Djoliba, the national touring company of Guinea. Since moving to the U.S. in 1992, M’Bemba is an integral part of the entire drum and dance scene nationwide. He has taught hundreds of students, many of who are now teachers themselves. In addition, he has personally created choreography and developed repertoire for dozens of dance companies  throughout the United States, Mexico, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. Dedicated to teaching drumming, dancing, and helping to preserve his culture, M’Bemba is one of the world's foremost ambassadors of Guinean drum and dance!​​
As a musician, artistic director, educator, and president of Wula Drum, Michael Markus has spent over twenty years performing, teaching and studying West African, Afro-Cuban, and American styles of drumming.  Along with a BFA in percussion, he has mentored with accomplished master indigenous artists and travels often to Guinea. Michael is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of cultural arts and socioeconomic development in Guinea, West Africa where he has based the production end of this company, Wula Drums, where authentically elegant and professional sounding African drums are crafted.
