Welcome to the official website of drummer and composer Ahmad Compaoré.

Drummer, composer and rare improviser, Ahmad Compaoré confirms his singular talent alongside Fred Frith, Marc Ribot, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Barre Phillips and Camel Zekri... But also as a member of the trio Oriental Fusion or as a duet with Egyptian dancer Karima Mansour. Free from boundaries, he equally enjoys the most extreme experiences in alternative and improvised music, jazz and fusion. Creator of the Musique Rebelle label, he teaches drums and contemporary percussion at the Friche la Belle de Mai, his place of residence in Marseilles. Involved in many projects, he was the regular drummer of bluesman Lucky Peterson during his European tour in 2017-2018.
