Energetic, entertaining and exciting are words that come to mind when recollecting Afrobeat’s drum workshops during the inaugural Sovereign Hill Music Festival. Afrobeat’s workshops introduced members of the audience to the art of West African Drumming by inviting the audience to participate in a group music ‘jam’. 60 or more children and parents participated in this event where the traditional barrier between performer and audience was well and truly broken!

The excellent communication skills of the Afrobeat performers, particularly with young children, and their ability to involve all members of the audience made these workshops a highlight of the Sovereign Hill Music Festival. It was not surprise that the feedback from both parents and children at these events was fantastic and I would expect that this experience would live long in their memories. I am happy to recommend Afrobeat as a fantastic choice of entertainment at your next event, no matter the age or musical ability of your audience.
