Kessing-Kessing what you're looking for?

Our Kessing-kessing are made in Guinea and The Gambia, West Africa, by an African Master Drummer, Libon Traore.

As individuals and professional players ourselves, we've experienced some of the frustrations that can arise when purchasing percussion instruments from Africa and we make a promise that we will do our best to make sure that your experience of buying from us is a good one; after all we want you to come back and buy more!

You can be reassured that these kessing are sold on a 'Fair Trade' basis and that the craftsmen who produce them are receiving a fair and decent income.
