The Drum Café is a refreshing new alternative to interactive audience participation. The mystique of not knowing what it is all about until you get into the performance is enticing! The Drum Café creates a synergy and energy that leaves the audience shed of all inhibitions. You must experience it to fully understand!

“Drumming is something everyone, and every culture can relate to. The first thing you hear when you come into this world is the beat of your mother’s heartbeat. Drumming relaxes, energizes and motivates in a way most team building companies cannot explain.”
— Warren Liebermann, founder of the Drum Café
Fun team building activities with roots in South African history
The Drum Café 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 café 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 Café are effective because, like a business, music requires communication and teamwork to reach its potential. As we all drum together, every member of our audience feels like a part of something bigger — while simultaneously gaining a better understanding his or her individual role. The most significant lesson Drum Café teaches audiences is that we all succeed — or fail — together.

Nearly two decades later, Drum Café has educated, inspired and united schoolchildren, workforces and even Fortune 500 executives through motivational techniques and interactive drumming — including
