Community Workshops

Hosting an African drumming or African dance workshop, interactive drumming show or Meditation Drumming session is a great way to give back to the community, strengthen your group dynamic and foster friendship and support. The experience of drumming together helps remove social barriers in a non-intimidating, and fun atmosphere. Participants relax, gain enthusiasm and the necessary confidence to fully participate. Get people talking and feeling good about themselves and their community! Afrobeat creates an atmosphere of fun, success, and being part of something special. Participants learn the art of working together without words, building dynamic sounds and polyrhythmic compositions traditional to African Music, leaving them uplifted, energised and inspired!
