The LowEndTheory Drum Ensemble is a home-grown music project that began as a community djembe jam in 2009. The Chicago-based drum ensemble plays original arrangements of djembe music from West Africa, while mixing in rhythmic flavors and sounds of its larger diaspora and other musical traditions. The group was founded and is directed by Andrew Elbert, a local performer/teacher/composer and active member of the Chicago djembe scene. The band consists of an ever-evolving set of local musicians and has featured master djembe musicians from West Africa. The ensemble recently added guitars, keyboards, and horns that fuse Western pop harmonies with traditional African rhythms to create a unique blend of what can only be described as “djembe rock n’ roll.” The music is exciting to watch, listen, and even more fun to dance! The LowEndTheory hopes to record its first album this summer to commemorate its ten-year anniversary.

Through interdisciplinary artistic mediums, we create a process + platform for stories of divine resilience. Our intention is to center voices, bodies, + hearts that have been impacted by systems of oppression. As a channel of unity consciousness, performers + audience alike move + witness to engage in collective transformation + liberation. Our works range from ancient ritual practices + classical cultural dances to contemporary expressions + exchanges.
