Oral traditionalist, teacher, and musician, Nurudafina Abena has been drumming for 40 years.
She studied drumming as a child with Master Babatunde Olatunji as well as with many masters of traditional folklore from African and Eastern origins.
Nuru performs AfroCuban folkloric music, traditional Malian and Senegalese West African spiritual, festive West Indian calypso, and American jazz, funk, hip hop, and R&B. She uses the drum as a link between these ancient cultures and our present musical art.
She has performed and studied in West Africa (Senegal), Kenya (East Africa), and in Cuba as well as nationally throughout the United States of America.
Nuru is a “Woman on a Mission”, using drumming to unite people from diverse backgrounds and to dispel the ignorance surrounding African music and diaspora Cultural folklore.
