Afrobeat for Kids is dynamic, colourful, full of energy and audience interactive! We get kids up and moving, shaking, call and response chanting, clapping percussion, dancing and drumming to the beat of Africa! It’s an exciting opportunity to ditch the role of spectator, and become part of the show, to learn without learning, and experience life with abandon.

Client Testimonial

Aine Tyrrell, Music Teacher
POINT LONSDALE PRIMARY  SCHOOL, Vic

'Afrobeat is not your average music program to visit a school. It offers so much more than just a one hour workshop for each grade. Afrobeat for Kids brings the kids together in rhythm, makes it contagious enough for the teachers to want to play along, and invites the school community to come together in a way that is truly special. Having travelled in Africa, it is clear to see that Janine weaves the very best of this cultural community drumming and offers it to Australian school kids in a way that makes sense, excites them and lets them experience African culture and music in their classrooms. Janine has an amazing energy and this gets the students, parents, and teachers all involved dancing, clapping and drumming. It truly is an unforgettable experience for students and staff alike and at the heart of it is a driving rhythm that brings the school community together in magical way'
