African Drumming

Every person gets his or her own instrument to play. For groups up to 40 people we can provide a drum for each player. We can also bring shakers, bells and various other hand held percussion instruments to the drumming orchestra. Playing simple interlocking parts that soon become musical; the whole sound will be powerful, resonant and much greater than the sum of the parts.

The participants do not require prior knowledge of drumming or special musical skills.
Our workshops are also suitable for people with special needs and disabilities. Drumming offers them an excellent opportunity for self expression, because it’s all about what they can do rather than what they can’t.
We also facilitate drum circles, in-the-moment music making through improvisation. Everyone is involved and contributes to the music. There is no audience, there is no right or wrong.
Drumming circles create a sense of community and connection and are a lot of fun!
