Show Description

For centuries people have used drumming to release stress, raise their spirits, enhance clarity and focus, and develop a culture of co-operation and community.

The effect of drumming is a synchronization of energy, a unity and common purpose. When you hear the rhythm of the group drumming and you are contributing your beat, you become receptive and creative all at the same time.

Each person is provided with a traditional African drum. Drum Cafe's team of master facilitators and musicians will teach you how to play and how listen to one another. Within 15 minutes your company will be making music!

With a proven record of over 10,000 events in 19 countries The Drum Cafe has astounded audiences across the globe by transforming groups into percussive orchestras within minutes.

The Drum Cafe has performed for The Queen of England, Nelson Mandela, Tony Blair and George W. Bush. Corporate clients include BMW, RBC, CIBC, London Drugs, Bank of America, Bayer, Coca-Cola, FedEx, General Motors, Georgia Pacific, Kaiser Permanente, Kodak, Microsoft, Motorola, SunTrust, GlaxoSmithKline and Turner Broadcasting.
