Slum Drummers

Faces of Africa - Beats of Hope: Slum Drummers of Kenya

Slum Drummers of Kenya is a community based group of young drummers who use scrapped materials to make their musical instruments which they use to entertain people. These young people grew up in one of the slums in the outskirts of Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya.

In 2012 the group performed for the queen of England during her birthday at the Diamond Jubilee concert in London. It was like a dream to them since most had never traveled out of Nairobi let alone fly.
