Where Thousands Become One
Drum Cafe can achieve a deep and powerful team building experience with groups of a thousand participants or more.
The benefit of drumming is that allows us to communicate nonverbally. In Africa and in many other cultures around the world, drumming has been used for thousands of years to bring people together. Even in this modern day, the drum still has the power to unify a diverse group of individuals into a coherent tribe.
Each attendee is given a drum or a percussion instrument to play. Within minutes, the entire audience is transformed into a percussive orchestra.
By learning to play as a team, we show the value of every individual’s unique contribution. We use the power of the beat to teach cooperation. We demonstrate leadership by helping participants recognize when to solo and when to support their peers. Through call and response, we teach the principles of communication and listening. Finally, we use the drumming skills we have learned to create music. We end with an interactive, high energy percussion set that embraces diversity, leadership, and self-expression.
Our program has been developed by globally recognized motivational speakers to enhance both participation and leadership. Our professional musicians energize large groups of people to improve their personal connections and motivate productivity through improved teamwork. Added to this lesson in communication, Drum Cafe customizes our performance to convey the key messages that express your organizational goals.
Company CEOs and HR consultants agree that Drum Cafe’s events improve communication between all members of an organization.

“To say the event was outstanding would be an understatement. The team led us through a dynamic, organized session with high energy and humor. This was like no team building we had ever experienced before. Our participants were engaged and energized, and the team building “broke down barriers” in our group to prepare us for the 3 days ahead. Some initial feedback from our participants: “This was the best team building event I have ever attended.” “My favorite part of the past three days was the drumming event.” We had 100% enthusiastic group participation. And even those people we had not expected to participate joined in with excitement.”
