Co-Founder, Artistic Director & Percussion Teacher

Bizung School of Music & Dance – Ghana

Mohammed Alidu was born and raised in Tamale, into the Bizung lineage of talking drum chiefs of Northern Ghana – a lineage that dates back over 1000 years. He learned to play talking drum from his father who was a renowned drum chief in Tamale and started to perform with him at a very young age. Since 2005, Alidu has resided in the U.S. where he formed his own band, The Bizung Family Band, and has been a sought after collaborator on diverse music projects with artists such as Playing For Change Band, Peter Gabriel and Baaba Maal.

With the help of the Playing For Change Foundation, Alidu founded the first tuition-free music school in Northern Ghana in 2009 – the Bizung School of Music and Dance, dedicated to preserving the history and culture of the Northern Region, where he teaches for several months every year.
