Group drumming is among the first artistic activities known
to people, by using hand clapping and stamping of feet rhythms were
developed which later became music, song and dance.
In africa, drumming and music has always been an integral part of
life - there is a West African saying: "without rhythm there
is no movement." Drumming was used as a means of communication
over long distances, that predated morse code and telephones by centuries.
Playing drums was a part of all aspects of life - and was used to
bring people together at festivals, celebrations, births, to work
together and to celebrate the completion of work done.
Drumming for Team Building
By using interactive group drumming as a team building activity
we harness the power of african rhythms, and the genetic footprint
in each one of us that instinctively responds to rhythm and drumming.
Drumming as a team is a co-operative activity that strengthens the
team by teaching the value of working together to make music. This
team building activity is especially powerful since it includes all
members of a team equally regardless of their age, culture or position
in the organisation - and it highlights communication in a non-verbal
way. Our team building sessions take this a step further by intentionally
challenging people to work together to create a musical piece. For
team building we use authentic African Djembe drums - using 2 basic
sounds, the bass and tone, many rhythms can be created. Singing and
dancing is often included in our team builds - and spontaneous interaction
