Drums and Drummers

The famous drums and drummers are at the heart of the culture and the inheritance of Burundi. The drummers are typical of Burundi and of the monarchic political power. They used to perform on solemn ceremonies and announced the important events of the country such as the enthronement of a king or the funerals of a king.

The drummers gave also the rhythm for the season’s cycle. The King Ntare Rugamba founded Gishora, the domain of the most famous drummers in Burundi. Gishora is perched on the top of a hill at 7 km of Gitega. This site was and remains managed by a local community named the “Abatimbo”.
