Drum Cafe was invited to perform at Oprah Winfrey’s Leadership Academy and facilitate an interactive drumming experience to inspire unity between students at their annual international conference.
Drumming was the perfect choice because rhythm naturally leads to a sense of unity, an experience that we are all connected.
This gives us a feeling of extreme well-being and it has been scientifically proven to relieve stress and even improve our immune system. For these learners it was an experience they won’t ever forget!
During the facilitation each student received their own African drum and by following the rhythms, as instructed by our master drummers, were turned into one massive drumming orchestra playing rhythms together in harmony regardless of their creed, race or nationality.
The sense of joy and freedom that was felt from the students could be seen in their relentless playing, expressions and spontaneous laughter being totally immersed in the melodic rhythms.
Experiencing unity in such a diverse and culturally rich world is something truly special and has a long lasting impact on how you interact and perceive the people and the world around you.
Drum Cafe uses these same principals in our corporate teambuilding programs which deliver magnificent results within corporate environments, increasing productivity, empowering individuals, relieving stress and increasing the sense of cohesion between team members.
