"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, energized and motivates in a way most team building companies cannot explain." – Warren Liebermann, founder of Drum Cafe Ltd.


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 people. It started when Warren Lieberman opened an actual Café where drumming was used in a relaxed environment to break down barriers and inspire patrons. Soon after opening, Warren was joined by Mbuyiselo Ncapayi and together they set an example of how two South Africans from vastly different upbringings, social and economical status could join together in creating unforgettable corporate events. These unforgettable interactive drumming activities grew into something bigger – extending Drum Café's reach globally.

Music is a universal language, rhythm is in all of us, it 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 is 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.
