Drum Cafe began in Johannesburg, South Africa, inspired by the experience of communal drumming in Africa and the passion to unite different groups of people together.
Natalie Spiro, our CEO and founder, brought this innovative approach to corporate team building and leadership development to the United States in 2002. Our programs leverage the stunning power of rhythm to engage people quickly and emotionally.
We continue to innovate and grow with our clients as we shift attitudes and affect change.
Rhythm resonates so deeply within us all. Music is a universal language, and as such, it transcends all the barriers and boundaries that separate us, whether professional or personal. Drumming is an activity all enjoys will enjoy and people of all cultures and backgrounds can relate to. We use the drum and the pulse as the medium because it unites, it energizes and it inspires the extraordinary, in ways NO other programs can.
Making music together encourages us to be sensitive and intuitive of all “voices” around us. In this way, we use drumming and rhythm as a means to create bonds between us, to build trust incrementally and to demonstrate kinesthetically, that every member of every team or division has a unique contribution to make in achieving overall success.
All of our corporate and educational programming is designed to spark unity and engagement – to enhance and harness the POWER of ONE team.
