How It Works

We will bring an African djembe drum for each participant direct to your venue.


Our professional facilitators will guide the group on a rhythmic journey that will inevitably unite the group and awaken the senses. We use multi part African rhythms to create a powerful, connected group experience and offer other activities such as dancing. singing, body percussion and jamming. We can cater for large scale events and smaller more intimate group sessions. Perfect for all ages and walks of life…no previous experience necessary.



Standard session time is 30 - 60 minutes as required


Each event is unique so we will customise a free quote for you. This is based on the number of participants, how many performers we will bring and the duration and location of the event.

Drum Circle Celebration - Soul Drummer Rhythm Night

These awesome free community events offer our students the chance to play the rhythms they have been learning to a live audience including family and friends. These events happen at the end of each drum course and feature a free open drum circle jam for all.

WHERE: Sydney Park, 2 King Street, Alexandria, (in the park look for the big 'old smoke stacks' on the Princes Highway side). Drum circle from 12pm picnic and chill after.
