OUR AFRICAN DRUMMING MISSION
Rhythm Culture provides African drumming incursions and dancing incursions to Primary Schools, High Schools, Kindergartens, Early Learning Child Care Centres and Vacation Care Centres across Australia. Our Drum Sing Dance Program, drumming incursions and dancing incursions focus on traditional West African rhythms from Mali, Guinea, Ghana and Senegal. Our dancing is mostly from Guinea, West Africa. Our classes, incursions, courses and workshops are fun, high energy and action packed.
Our knowledge of West African drum and dance is constantly expanding due to our strong connections with teachers all over the world. Our professional artists are engaged in continuous study and training with these teachers. We endeavour to stay true to the culture as much as possible by ensuring that content for all incursions, workshops and classes incorporate the correct calls, ensemble parts and dance moves to each rhythm.
We make and sell West African instruments, African Djembes and Dunduns for schools and child care centres around Australia. Why not custom make your own school set with school colours!?
Why does this matter? It is a complex and detailed culture and we aim to teach these rhythms the way we were taught. Djembe is a deeply profound instrument and has respect all over the world. We dedicate our work and study into sharing not only this beautiful rich culture, but the rhythms and dances from Master West African drummers and dancers all over the world.
What do we do differently? We teach drumming, singing and dancing! Immerse your students with our Drum Sing Dance programs.
What do we hope to achieve? We hope to introduce West African music, rhythms and dances to Australian’s through drum and dance camps where we host African artists, workshops and educational African drumming and dancing school incursions. Our intention is to contribute in growing the West African Djembe culture in Australia.
