African Drumming is one of the most ancient forms of Team building . Drumming for weddings, celebrations or community gatherings were all team building activities on some level. A drum session in a tribal village acted as an ice breaker and a team building exercise simultaneously.

Today , for corporate events, private party entertainment or even intensive team training activities, drum workshops again have become a way of uniting and inspiring. When a company is looking for a conference activity for a product launch , the goal must always be to create a fun group activity as well as a powerful stage performance to capture attention and engage with the audience. African Drum performances are not always interactive, and can delivered purely to create an ambiance. This is perfect for a Corporate Conference Kick off, after lunch as an energiser or during dinner in place of an after dinner speaker .

Drum Cafe offer Team building activities, conference ideas and ice breakers for meetings in London, Birmingham, or anywhere in the UK and Europe. Drum Cafe UK is  a branch of Drum Cafe International. We have branches in Germany www.drumcafe.de , South Africa www.drumcafe.net , Netherlands www.drumcafe.nl , Taiwan www.drumcafe.com.tw , USA www.drumcafe.com (www.drumcafewest.com www.drumcafeeast.com ) and Canada www.drumcafe.ca
