Drumming has been used for centuries to unite tribes. Now it's time to unite your team through the universal language everyone that everyone can relate to. Through music. Drumming is something every culture can relate to. The first thing you hear when you come into this world is the beat of your mother’s heartbeat. Drum Cafe helps individuals and groups rediscover their heartbeat. And get the whole everyone beating as one.
The Drum Cafe was founded in 1996 in Johannesburg, South Africa, as a tool for bringing together the country’s diverse and divided post-Apartheid peoples. It started when Warren Lieberman opened an actual cafe where drumming was used in a relaxed environment to break down barriers and inspire patrons. But the interactive drumming activities grew into something bigger — something global. Music is a universal language — there’s rhythm in all of us — that allows us to communicate, work together and experience a common sense of belonging. Through music, we learn to be receptive and creative at the same time.
The methods of Drum Cafe are effective because, like a business, music requires communication and teamwork to reach its potential. As we all drum together, every member of the audience feels like a part of something bigger — while simultaneously gaining a better understanding his or her individual role. The most significant lesson Drum Cafe teaches audiences is that we all succeed — or fail — together.
