African Drumming for Kids

Guaranteed FUN - We come to you!

Afrobeat for Kids is FUN, engaging, educational, inclusive and entertaining, and allows for all abilities to experience success. Afrobeat for Kids captures the imagination of its young audiences while inspiring cultural awareness, diversity, team spirit, and connection through African drumming.


This is a colourful and theatrical interactive drum and dance experience where African drums and percussion instruments are supplied and children are invited to join in! Ditch the role of spectator, and become part of the show! Within minutes, our young audiences become a lively orchestra. Their beats fall in together to create a percussive locomotive filled with enthusiasm and joy! Through a series of dynamic non-verbal gestures and dramatic mime (much like an animated orchestra conductor), Afrobeat introduce exciting musical games and movements that focus on maximum participation. During the session Afrobeat will have your kids up and moving, shaking, call and response chanting, dancing and drumming to the beat of Africa!
