Why the Drumming Celebration Works
For thousands of years, numerous cultures have used hand drums
for celebrations, rites of passage and gatherings. Using the
same qualities that were used by these ancient cultures, The
Drumming Celebration will gently and effortlessly guide your
guests into the magical world of rhythm. It is this rhythm,
along with humor, dance, and creative games that will ensure
total group exhilaration and ignite your function.
of the Celebration
In addition to drumming, guests are invited to vocalize nonsensical
rhythm words (scat) in an atmosphere of humor and playfulness.
These exercises help guests to experience the magic of rhythm
through their voices. These exercises often ease the concerns
that some individuals may have about expressing themselves
Personal Musical Expression
Using a variety of percussion instruments such as congas,
log drums, ashikas, dumbeks , frame drums, djembes and other
rhythm instruments, participants are led through numerous
musical exercises, including the experience of the drum circle,
rhythm and dance, and numerous creative games. Each participant
is encouraged to freely and creatively express him or herself.
During certain rhythm breaks, your guests will be entertained
with skits designed to inspire the rhythm and playfulness
of the audience.

function, The Drumming Celebration will be tailored to meet
your needs. Whether for parties or corporate events, The Drumming
Celebration will combine the powerful traditions of the past
with the innovations of the contemporary to create a memorable
