African Drumming

The workshop is all hands-on and teaches students traditional African drumming, songs and body-percussion. Our instructor Oumar, is a renowned master drummer from West Africa with years of teaching experience and will lead the group on an entertaining, rhythm filled journey, using drumming and music to teach about Africa and its Indigenous cultures.
Our workshops can be tailored to fit your school’s curriculum, and can work towards a performance of the repertoire learnt during the program such as Arts Weeks, graduation ceremony or celebration of cultural diversity and African studies. We bring drums and percussion instruments for all participants up to 30.

The workshops and performances are suitable for all educational levels and are formulated to:
  • Encourage students to work together as a team
  • Enhance hand-eye coordination

  • Enhance listening skills
  • Expose students to musical traditions from West Africa and the role music plays within the West African culture
  • Release stress
  • Overcome inhibitions and promote confidence
  • Break down social, gender, age and cultural differences
  • Foster left/right brain integration.
