Rhythm lovers unite for one huge weekend showcasing myriad musical genres from around the globe: The Big Drum – World Percussion Extravaganza!

African Drumming is thrilled to tap into Melbourne’s love of music & rhythm by hosting a diverse, multi-cultural percussion festival bursting with interactive workshops and performances. We have curated Melbourne’s finest percussion specialists coupled with international artists to deliver this unique program at the wonderful Bakehouse Studios in Richmond.
