Tailored events for any group size

Whether you’re after a solo or an ensemble show, we’ll tailor the performance to suit your vision. You can add traditional West African dancers, or an interactive element to get the crowd involved.

We’ll handpick the performers, from West African to home-grown talent. The scope of our ensembles goes beyond Africa and includes Latin performers, Fire Twirling artists and Marching Bands. We are experienced in delivering energetic staff parties, product launches and client events of any size.


Bands & ensembles

Our ensembles will bring the vibrant energy of West Africa to your event. These are our most popular groups: we’re flexible in our approach and will tailor an entertainment package which suits your vision. Want an interactive experience? You can drum and dance with us! We can bring along drums and shakers for your audience to join in all the fun.

Don’t quite need a full band? Choose your own combination of performers. We have a superb team of musicians and dancers available nationwide. A drum and dance combination makes a memorable impression to wow your audience, and we also have face painters, witch doctors and fire twirlers available. Offering both interactive and performance-based sessions, we know how to choose the perfect performer for your event.

“We cannot express just how amazing the African Drumming experience was last Thursday at our offsite event. All 133 attendees were fully engaged and had an absolute ball. We’ve received nothing but positive feedback from everyone that participated. Please pass on our thanks again to the performers – they were truly outstanding! Thanks again to all of the African Drumming team for providing such a memorable experience for our company. We couldn’t recommend you highly enough!”


“The one hour session was a new and interesting experience for the many participants, both young and old. Those involved had a great time and were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to express themselves and make music in a relaxed group environment. I would have no hesitation recommending Simon’s workshops for a range of applications”

Hume City Council

“The perfect end to our Staff Conference. I had an image in my mind of what I wanted to achieve through the session, and Simon expertly brought it to fruition. Within one hour, we were creating amazing music that belied our level of experience – helping to bring the Conference to a close, and leaving the group on a high. I highly recommend African Drumming corporate workshops for anyone looking for a powerful group experience for their organisation or team”
