Welcome to Wula Drum

In our mission to find a great drum for every drummer, we've created a community around drum and dance culture. We continue to grow our community by offering high quality instruments, classes, workshops, music therapy, retreats, learning materials, and a performing ensemble.

There is truly something for everyone on the Wula store - from beginners, to professional performers, to drum builders, to dancers, and more. If you don't see what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us to see what is on the way from Guinea. For more information about our models, check out About Our Drums.

Each unique design is handmade by our team of Wula master craftsmen in Guinea, West Africa. We hope you enjoy playing our drums as much as we do making them – Keep Drumming!
