About Tribe of Doris

Bringing artists and audiences together to create cultural events of music, dance & ceremony.

27 years ago an animated group of music lovers and adventurers met on a campsite outside of Bristol to celebrate their love of drumming and culture. They wanted to acknowledge the drum at the heart of music, recognising the importance of the artists as carriers of cultural knowledge. They invited a little slice of West African goodness to the merry fields of England. Over the years lots of loving has nurtured this tiny seed which has grown into a thriving community. The drum was our inspiration and our focus quickly grew to include all aspects of music, dance and song from across the world. Tribe of Doris is not only an organisation but a collective of people who are passionate about engaging with each other and the world around us. Through community events, festivals, a Summer School and gatherings we continue to spread our love of diversity and culture.
