About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

In 1985 Michael Röttger travelled to Westafrica. He studied the culture, met numerous drummers and dancers and took lessons in djembe drumming. On return he supplied several interested acquaintances with drums. Visiting music shops all over Germany, he soon discovered that there was considerable demand for African instruments

In 1986 Dasitu Kajela-Röttger (from Ethiopia) and Michael Röttger travelled to Senegal and founded the company Afroton in the same year. Afroton is a Frankfurt based wholesaler for unusual percussion and melody instruments from countries outside of Europe, especially from Africa. Afroton supplies musicians, traders and distributors all over the world.

The instruments are produced in close cooperation with craftspeople in Germany, Guinea, Côte D‘Ivoire, Ghana, Brazil, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Thailand, China, Chile and Australia. In the process, traditional instruments are selected and carefully optimated for the needs of professional musicians. The classic African drums are available in several distinct typs from standard to masterclass quality. The wide product range also includes numerous reliable instruments for music education and therapy. In addition, the customers can rely on a repair service for most types of drums. If you want exceptional instruments for a good price, Afroton will satisfy your needs.
