We were excited when the Canva team got in touch about a team building in Sydney they wanted us to be part of. But this wasn’t your typical team building. It wasn’t to address conflict or encourage team cohesion like we are often tasked with. This was a party. A celebration of a job well done.
Team Building in Sydney with Canva
When Chris Low got in touch, he told us of the incredible milestones the innovative business had reached…
10 million international users
Over 100 languages (including Zulu)
Canva recognised that each of their staff got them to these milestones and wanted to show their appreciation. Interactive African Drumming fit the bill and we were so pleased to be part of their celebration.
One of our favourite things to do at African Beat is run workshops and events with kids and watching them having fun. There is something about the unbridled joy of beating in time and moving with the beat that makes everyone smile. It is so much FUN!
As adults, we sometimes get caught up in the seriousness of life and concern about being watched or judged.
While adults feel it is their job to teach the younger generation, sometimes there are thing adults can learn from watching kids.
Here is what we have learned from our years working with young people teaching them how to drum:
BOOM Beats! provides a rare opportunity that involves the whole family, from the youngest to the oldest, to boogie on down and have some fun together. Complete with an African drum on each seat you are drawn into not only a music lesson but also a visual & audible spectacle from the incredible performers.
The Salaka Ensemble
This group of musicians, singers and dancers, billed as Ghana’s hottest Drum & Dance Ensemble, have toured Australian schools & local communities for the past 11 years. Saturday, September 22, 2018 marks their debut Public Show, right here in Brisbane. The Salaka Ensemble are incredibly energetic and passionate about sharing their heritage. It only takes a few minutes to understand why – it’s truly fantastic. Their infectious enthusiasm for the music will create an overwhelming desire for the audience to experience this joy for themselves.
Sunday 1 July 2018 marks the 40th edition of the Gold Coast Marathon & runners are celebrating with African Drumming! We are thrilled to be chosen to provide weary runners with a welcome distraction. The Gold Coast may be famous for it’s flat, fast and 42km scenic course, but it’s no easy feat so African Beat’s Authentic African drummers will be there to create an exciting atmosphere for participants & spectators.
