Team building has never been so effective! Each individual brings their unique sound into the mix to create a one-of-kind percussive orchestra-one that wouldn’t be the same without the people who are taking part. This is truly a case of unity through diversity.

  • Break down barriers to create a more open organization.
  • Align to a common goal, mission or vision.
  • Improve Communications through accurate feedback.
  • Accelerate Productivity by motivating staff and getting them to listen to each other.

First, we break down barriers, level the playing field, with an opening of non-verbal communication. Music is a universal language, that allows us in a universal way to break down barriers and transcend the difference among us as humans and individuals. In Africa and in many other cultures around the world, drumming has been used for centuries to bring people together.

Second, we align everyone to a common theme through the bass note, the foundation of the music. In every organization, before true success can be realized, there needs to be alignment or some sort. This alignment could be to the vision, mission or values of an organization. We use the power of the bass note, the alignment of the music, as the metaphor for demonstrating the power of alignment with in the group.

Third, we explore the diversity, in each and everyone’s unique and individual contribution through the tone note. Through call and response we teach the importance of communicating better by accurate feedback.

We close off with an interactive high energy percussion set, embracing diversity handing out fun percussive instruments, in an all out celebration of self expression and leadership. This is where we take the drumming skills that we have learned in the beginning to create music. A celebration of diversity, contribution, team building and leadership.

This is also a great lesson in leadership. Leadership is about knowing when to play and not to play. When it is time to take a solo or when it s time to support your piers. Through the rhythm, your organization will discover that the whole is greater than the sum of all its individual parts.

A fantasy of fire and drums

In October 2012, Drum Cafe Germany performed with ‘Firedancer’ in their largest combined event to date. The show took place before an audience of 2000 people for Meyer Werft (currently building the ship “Fantasy” for Disney). It included a combination of interactive drumming, a human beatbox, the firedancer show and LunatX fireworks.

The key message of the event remains consistent: inside every employee is a little flame that can develop into a huge fire. According to Matthias Jackel, “I have never had so much fire around me in my whole life. It was a very intense experience. I loved it.”
