What others are saying!
Thanks so much it was a great way to start the day off before our meeting. From all accounts everyone enjoyed the session so thank you. A lot of fun and a great euphemism for our corporate journey and aspirations to be…
…a harmonious workplace. This was a creative fun approach towards team building and unity. Great right / left brain activity, providing creative escapism.
We had Afrobeat attend the afternoon of our annual planning day. I was overjoyed to walk into the function room after a break, only to find the room set up in three rows of chairs, with a drum in front of each. My joy grew exponentially as I sank into…
…the meditation and excitement of drumming within the group; after 40 minutes of this I was hooked, and myself and a colleague signed up to Janine’s community classes.
These workshops were highly successful in bringing together our community. Participants learned the beautiful rhythms of Africa and their cultural stories. We learned how different rhythms were specific to different celebrations & customs. It was an enlightening experience for all involved. During these workshops, we were approached by the producers of Channel 10’s
…’Totally Wild’ to film a story on African Drumming. It was an extremely exciting time, bringing a community of young people, parents & workers together. Janine is very sincere & genuine & has the ability to energise a group of people & inspire them to share with her the wonderful rhythms & dances of Africa.
Leaps and Bounds staff and students had a great term, which culminated in a brilliant performance. Indeed, the facilitator was very charismatic & always appropriate for our students who all have different issues and difficulties. The performance in front of parents driven by Afrobeat’s enthusiasm & belief in them was an amazing feat for students…
…who may never have an opportunity to show their skills or push their limits in front of an audience, particularly one who they believe may be sceptical or negative. They put their fears aside, and the looks on their faces showed how important this event (and the previous lessons) had been.
Energetic, Entertaining & Exciting! Afrobeat introduced members of the audience to the art of African Drumming by inviting them to participate in a group music ‘jam’. 60 or more children & parents participated in the event where traditional barrier between performer and audience was well and truly broken!…
The excellent communication skills of Afrobeat, particularly with young children, and their ability to involve all members of the audience made these workshops a highlight of the Festival. It was no surprise that the feedback from was fantastic and I would expect that this experience would live long in their memories.
It was an awesome show yesterday! Huge full school attendance and an epic high energy and engaging interactive performance! The students were welcomed with beautiful kora music and drumming. Later, several students were invited to the stage and guided through a drumming workshop…
…while the rest of the school clapped along, and everyone was in awe of the dancing and flips and somersaults that followed! High energy drumming and a phenomenal show! The teachers drum and dance inclusion towards the end was enjoyed by all, and the guys were real pros: such a powerful combo!
A fantastic high energy performance. We were clapping and stamping our feet from start to finish. Kept 550 kids enthralled for the whole show!
The whole school loved the experience. The kids really enjoyed the smaller group experience where they all had access to a drum… Initially I was thinking the first small group activity would be too short however having seen the kids in action they were pooped after the 25 minutes. The staff loved the experience, Thank-you!
Afrobeat is not your average music program to visit a school. It offers so much more! Afrobeat brings the kids together in rhythm, makes it contagious enough for the teachers to want to play along, and invites the school community to come together in a way that is truly special. It’s clear to see Afrobeat…
…weaves the very best of this cultural drumming & offers it to Aussie school kids in a way that makes sense, excites them & lets them experience African culture and music in their classrooms. At its heart is a driving rhythm that brings the school community together in magical way!
EXACTLY what I was looking for! The entire audience (Prep-Year 6, and teachers) was into the show. Entertaining and interactive. Fantastic!
Our facilitator was excellent the children thoroughly enjoyed their first session, as did I! Fantastic, enlivening, well pitched to children!
Performance was great, high impact, very interactive and absolutely loved by all the children!
Thank-you for a fantastic performance at the school’s Harmony Day celebrations. The students loved it and the teachers all agreed it was the best visiting performance we have had. Please pass on my thanks to the performers.
