  • Pure Life Studios 206 Clark Street LaGrange, GA, 30240 United States (map)


About Ten Blocks Away: Ten Blocks Away is a West African style percussion ensemble, specializing in music that brings people together in joyful community. The band emerged from a group of friends who were studying djembe music through the Tam Tam Mandingue school, founded by Guinean djembe Grand Master, Mamady Keita.

In the spirit of West African musical tradition, a Ten Blocks Away show is a highly interactive event. Core fans often sing along, while our soloists engage directly with audience members with an electrifying energy that inspires everyone to dance! More than a passive entertainment experience, TBA provides the engine for celebratory party!
