ANYONE CAN DRUM
HAVE THE WASAMBA EXPERIENCE!!
Our Musical Director, Ben, is Australia's first Meinl Viva Rhythm Facilitator.
Viva Rhythm and Wasamba encourage community inclusiveness through music. Everyone has the chance to play music, be part of a team and have some fun!!
Wasamba will run an immersive experience into the world of drumming. You'll not only have the joy of Samba and Carnival, but experience funk, rock, reggae, hip hop and more.
Our workshop team is made up of the Wasamba facilitators. A group of Wasambians that have been trained by our Musical Director to run a seamless and professional workshop for all ages and ensure everyone is engaged and enjoy.
Schools, companies, fairs or community groups. We can run a workshop for anyone. We usually suggest 45 min - 1 hr. We can cater up to 60 drummers at once.
