Promoting traditional music and culture of Guinea for over 10 years!
we  are  from  Guinean  West  Africa  -  based  in  Toronto  Canada
We will organize a Djembe workshop which is more beneficial than a drum circle.
Djembe drumming will be explained to you in a fun environment.
You will learn and be challenged in our workshops, unlike in drum circles
Unlike drumming circle, the nature of West African drumming gets people together within the structure of the music.
Our workshops are not like drumming circles because of the history and teaching component which does not exist in free Djembe Jams or drum circles.

Our Team building workshop is using the West African musical orchestra model from Guinea,  as a unique, original, and fun icebreaker tool to bring your team members closer to one another.
The workshop will also encourage them to communicate better, and will  boost their morale.

If you've been looking for an event that can energize and motivate your team, look no  further.
