To spice up your festival and create a Carnival-like atmosphere.

We currently offer African Drumming workshops for adults and children and events entertainment at all year round festivals nationwide.

On offer also is our African Drumming Rhythm ensemble providing a nonstop pounding rhythmic ensemble that can be as many as six percussionists on the day or as little as two on the day for crowd walk around and interaction and meet and greets. Our ensemble makes crowd interaction a big part of what we do.  See sample here



With our workshops, we are fully mobile and can provide up to 40 drums on the day with a variety of shakers bells, and African xylophones. Participants learn how to create their own rhythm, sing songs and chants, Within five minutes we have people playing the drum, grooving, dancing and clapping to an energetic beat. We can also tutor workshop participants to take part in a basic performance or parade to showcase their skills as part of your festival lineup.


We cater to your requirements and needs on the day and can arrange a timetable to suit. We have done such events as Birthday Parties, Festivals such as the Dun laoghaire ‘Festival of World Cultures’ 2006 Terriglas Festival Tipperary 2007, Green Gathering 2008, Roundstone Summer Festival 2009, Feile Lispoil Dingle 2009.
