The Drum Cafe is in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal Ottawa and Winnipeg and across the USA.
Our interactive, hands-on programs are designed for general session entertainment, team building and experiential learning, relating music and rhythm, metaphorically to the dynamics of working together in an organization.
The Drum Cafe brings power, passion and energy to any kick off, closing or break out or evening entertainment at your conference.
Everyone gets to play a drum.
What the Drum Cafe can do for you.
Time is tight:
On a shortened agenda, you need something that delivers a powerful experience in an hour or less that stays with them through the conference and after they’ve gone home.
You need an experience that far outweighs the investment, especially when compared to competing alternatives considered or done in years gone by.
You need a facilitators’ abilities to relate them to the organizational and meeting objectives drive the ROI through the roof and are often utilized by other sessions throughout the conference agenda.
A hands-on experience – literally – reaches deep down to grab the delegates in a way that is far more provocative and responsive than the typical conditioned responses of arriving for meetings prepared to be a spectator.
It goes without saying that we all need an opportunity to let off some steam, have some fun, and connect with our fellow colleagues in a fun, entertaining way that helps to regenerate the senses, put the smiles back on our faces, and remind all of us that we are human…and laughter is some pretty potent medicine.
The Drum Cafe concept, the oldest form of team building, is a unique hands-on application of African drums and percussion that is not only suited for team building, but for powerful general session kick offs, closings or awards banquets.
Imagine the power of 300 to 2000 people applauding with drums at your recognition evening.
The Drum Cafe has a number of teams across the USA and Canada, that travel to each event with hundreds and sometimes thousands of drums in tow – one for each audience participant – We perform events for anywhere between 5 and 5000 participants!
We customize the program for you
Through a customized and carefully facilitated interactive program, success is built in a stepwise fashion.
First we break down barriers, level the playing field, with an opening of non-verbal communication.
Second, we align everyone to a common theme, vision or mission through the bass note, the foundation of the music.
Third, we explore the diversity, in each and everyone’s unique and individual contribution through the tone note, the communication note.
We close off with a fun high energy percussion set, embracing diversity handing out fun percussive instruments, in an all out celebration of self expression and leadership.
Through the universal language of music and rhythm, your organization will discover that the whole is greater than the sum of all its individual parts. Working collaboratively is fun, productive, inspirational and it creates a space that transcends barriers of communication and culture, and it is from that place where the magic happens.
Umuntu ngumuntu ngabanutu. A centuries–old Zulu phrase, literally meaning: “Through the collective experience we unite and we grow.”
