Hands-on African drumming workshops
Experience the rich and vibrant culture of West Africa through djembe drumming!
Rhythm of Life present energetic and fun African drumming workshops, lead by Guinean master drummer Mohamed Camara. The workshops cover basic djembe technique, call-and-response, solos, accompaniments, improvisation and African song.
Suitable to people of all ages and abilities, with no experience necessary. We provide up to 40 drums for the workshops.
Traditional African drum and dance ensemble
Rhythm of Life's traditional ensemble features African master drummers and dancers in colourful traditional costumes playing high energy djembe hand drums, dun dun bass drums, balafon (xylophone), kora (stringed harp), singing and dance.
Our performances can be interactive, involving audiences with African drumming, singing and dance, and we also offer roving performances.
We can provide any number of performers for your event.
