Irawo Drumline (real name Oluwakemi Bamidele Famugbode) is a drummer, singer, songwriter and disc jockey from Lagos, Nigeria. She plays and teaches the gangan, a musical instrument which originates from the Yoruba land of Nigeria and popularly known as the talking drum. She is a jazz musician.

Irawo is currently working on her debut album titled 'Rhythm Adventure'.

In 2007, she got a scholarship to study music at the Pencils Film and Television Institute (PEFTI) in Lagos. She majored in drum set and graduated with a distinction.

In 2012, she won the Christmas Magic Contest in a charity concert organized by the Music Society of Nigeria (MUSON) and the Art Colony International. During the event, she competed with a pianist, a violinist, a tenor singer and a quartet of clarinet players, using the talking drums to perform classical and jazz compositions.

In 2014, she was made a talking drum ambassador by Intro Afrika, organizers of the Yoruba Drum Festival. In 2016, she will be touring Germany on their bill to promote the sound of the talking drums.
