Our African parties are great fun and always memorable. Drumming and dancing let kids be creative and energetic in a positive way, as well as provide original cultural experience for them to share with their friends. We usually deliver a mix of drumming, dancing and singing, but we’re always adaptable and can change it up as you wish. We bring drums and shakers for everyone.
A typical session runs for 50 minutes, depending on the age group.
After something to remember the event by? We offer drums and key rings at special gift prices. They make a great themed present on the special day!
We can also provide performance only entertainment; see our Bands & Ensembles.

"Bouba hosted a drumming party for my child, and I could not recommend him enough. He knew how to work the crowd of both children and parents alike. All the guests enjoyed it so much - it was great fun for all! I would not hesitate to book with these guys, they are professional and have been brilliant to deal with. Thank you so so much! I don’t know how I’d top that for the next party!"Indigo S
"I had Mohamed at my son’s first birthday on the weekend and he was just fantastic! He was very nice and worked so well with the children. There was a pretty big age range amongst the kids and some of the younger children became distracted but Mohamed changed it up and encouraged interaction, movement and was very engaging! I had many guests approach me and tell me that it was refreshing having something other than a magician or clown as entertainment. The service that was provided to me from the very start was prompt and friendly. I am so glad I organised the drumming, it was different and unique, and I would definitely recommend!"Natasha Sciré
"Noah had a fantastic time - he described it as the best birthday party he has ever had! And Bouba was so patient with the kids - while at the same time keeping them on task. Many of the parents stayed for the first little while and were all really impressed with the activities and the music. We were also very appreciative of Bouba playing for us (Noah, hubby, grandparents and others helping to set up the room) - the music had quite a calming effect and put us all in a great frame of mind before hosting 12+ 8 year olds! Thank you Bouba. We would highly recommend you and African Drumming to anyone who is interested."Sarah Bacon
