WHAT WE DO
African Soul presents and facilitates West African drumming and dance sessions, for the corporate sector, schools and communities, and for all health and wellbeing areas. Our interactive performances and shows, workshops and team building sessions are exciting, effective and unforgettable and allow self expression in a friendly and safe environment. Our aim is to bring West African music and dance to Australia and world-wide, promoting cultural awareness, unity, motivating and empowering participants through the use of the drum. “In Ghana we can use the drum to prepare… to relax, to focus and to refresh the mind. Drumming switches on your brain.” Bortier Okoe, Master Drummer, Ghana African Soul delivers a variety of programmes and workshops for schools individually tailored to suit your specific needs. Our professional facilitators ensure that all participants learn valuable skills such as listening, teamwork and creativity whilst at the same time having fun.

“Just wanted to thank you for a fantastic experience on Tuesday. We were ALL just thrilled with the workshop – it was fabulous. The children, carers and those of us from the office were joined in a morning of pure joy and we all got so much out of it on so many different levels. You made us feel like one big family!!!” Lyn Kerr Family Day Care Fieldworker - Central Metro
