In 1995, the Mitchell Family formed The Ibeji Drum Ensemble to "edu-tain" (educate and entertain) audiences of all ages and ethnicities and to preserve and cultivate an awareness of the rich musical traditions of West Africa.

The Ibeji Drum Ensemble was founded by Dr. Anthony B. Mitchell (Baba Tony), Beatrice Y. Mitchell (Iya Bea) and their twin sons, Anthony, Jr., and Dante. Ibeji means “twins” in the West African Yoruba tradition. As a family, the Mitchell’s embody the traditional musical heritage of Africa. The Mitchells have traveled numerous times to Guinea, Senegal, and Ghana, West Africa, and Cuba to study traditional drum, dance, and culture.
