African Drumming Workshops

We specialise in African drumming workshops in schools and work with many schools wanting to launch an Africa topic with a memorable drumming workshop experience. 

Our African drumming workshops in schools usually begin with a whole school assembly, in which we give a short demonstration and talk about the instruments. This includes how the instruments are made, where they come from and how they fit into African culture. 

African drumming is usually accompanied by songs and dance, and we often bring these elements into our workshops to deepen the experience. We also use stories to provide context and understanding. 

We use djembés and dunduns in our schools workshops and can cater for a large groups drumming simultaneously. Djembés are a goblet-shaped drum played with the hands. The drum skin is a shaved goat skin and creates a high sound when played on the edge, and a low bass note in the middle. Dunduns are large bass drums and can be played with sticks due to having a thicker cow skin playing surface.
