What do we offer?
We will work with you to ensure your child’s birthday party is everything they hope for! We have drum, dance, storytelling and art options - there is no extra charge for mixing activities. There may be some charge for art materials if and where used.
Every child will have a drum and these sessions can be led inside or outside - a circle of chairs is needed. Your sessions will be run by an experienced African professional musician.
They are fun interactive session in which storytelling games and song may also be used.
We use large easy to follow movements to get the party started!
This can work alongside the drumming workshop or as a stand alone option.
Kwame is a skilled muralist and he will work with your children at the party to create an artwork for you to keep. You can even add photos or other memory elements to the finished piece.
Adinkra symbols are a fun and easy way to make art. Older children may choose stamps representative of themselves of their friendship with your child.
Children can create an artwork to talk home or contribute to a larger piece as a memory for your day.
What to expect?
Kwame has been running workshops in schools across the UK for 15 years. Birthday party sessions are designed to be lighted, with the full focus on fun! Our team of highly skilled professional musicians are African Drumming specialists working in education who able to engage and entertain.
Your practitioners will be wearing national dress (not a costume!) and will lead a visual as well as musically exciting session!
How many participants?
As a rough rule of thumb we advise one practitioner for every 40 participants. Maximum group size is limited by the space you have available. We are currently limited to 1500 drums, but can use body percussion and voice with larger groups.

It's amazing watching Kwame maintain the attention of the kids. They are so attentive to the music and the story. AND, there are drums to beat and dancing to do.
We had the best day! The children loved it from start to finish. Please say a huge thanks to the team, they were so flexible and great fun.
He was brilliant I'm so glad he could come and do the party for us
We recently attended a fabulous birthday party and Kwame was brilliant! I have a three, five and seven year old - and there aren't many activities our there that have all three occupied at the same time! Highly recommended.
