How much notice do I need to give to book?

We generally open for bookings around September (end Term 3) for the following year. The earlier you book, the better – we will have more options and should be able to accommodate your requests. 

We will do our best to accommodate any last-minute bookings – providing we are available. However, our calendar does get pretty full so please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment and to allow sufficient time for planning. 

There may be additional administration fees added to bookings that are made with less than 2 weeks notice.  


Who are the performers?

Our performances are always led by a Master Drummer from Africa. All our performers are authentic African musicians/dancers… The real deal!  


Where are you?

Our office is currently based on the beautiful Gold Coast and our Artistic Director Tuza is based in Sydney. We work with professional African musicians in all the cities and only choose the best!

Preparing for the Show(s)

How should the room be set up?

We will need an open space and a few chairs for the performance area.

The children can sit on the floor or on chairs in front of the performance space or in a circle.

A stage is not essential. The drums will be set up adjacent to the performance space in rows. The number of drums will depend on the number of children. The performers will be able to adjust the performance needs to your available space.


Will you need a PA system?

Nope! No amplification of sound is required


What if our location can be difficult to find/access?

If you have specific arrival instructions please email this to us at least one week prior to the show or preferably at the time of confirming your booking. Please also reserve a parking space for us if possible.


Will you remind us about the booking?

We do not call you to remind you of their booking however you are welcome to double check everything is ok with us at any time. As long as you have signed a confirmation and returned it to our office that is all we need at this end.


Do you have instruments available for sale?

We have lots! Please take a look at our online store or for bulk buy pricing please ask us a question and we’ll send you a quote.

The Day of the Show(s)

How long is the activity?

Our shows are 50 minutes each.


What time do you arrive?

The performers will arrive approx. 20 minutes prior to the show to allow plenty of time to set up.


What’s involved in the set up?

We prepare and deliver all necessary equipment and handle all set up. You don’t need to lift a finger! Our African Performers will need to get as close as possible to the performance area to be able to transport the drums to the performance area.


What about the pack up?

Again, we do everything. We will pack up immediately after our session.


What else do you need from me?

We will need the final number of children attending the show on the day to ensure we invoice you correctly.

We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for us.


Can we take pictures/videos?

You can certainly take pictures for internal purposes – can you please ensure African Beat is referenced so anyone who sees it can also know who was involved. We’d also love to see the pictures so if you could email them to us that would be appreciated.

And if you want to share any on Facebook or Instagram please use the links to tag us.

After the Show(s)

When do I pay?

We will invoice you after the show(s) when we know the exact number of children that attended. Your payment is due within 14 days of the invoice.


How do I pay?

We will send you an invoice with instructions of how to transfer the money into our bank account. There is also an option to pay by credit/debit card (please let us know if you want this option) and there is a 3% processing fee for this method.
