Community Drumming

When we drum together, we build community ONE beat at a time!

Our dedicated and passionate team are helping build and restore communities, empower, and heal individuals ...ALL to the beat of the drum!

Hosting an Afrobeat Interactive drumming experience is a great way to give back to your community, strengthen your team 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 in other activities together. 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!

We LOVE what we do and we do it with genuine joy and compassion. These traits along with our specialised skills and training; and 20 years experience working with diverse people and group dynamics makes us a popular choice for clients looking for something unique, inspiring and appropriate for their group or community event!

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.
