African Beat at the The aroma coffee festival, the rocks

Festival & Councils

Fire up your festival with African music from our colourful Drummers and Dancers. We offer African percussion stage shows, African fusion bands, interactive drum workshops, children's entertainment and roving performers. As an extra special addition, we can also include belly dancers and fire performers.

Our performance is the highlight of the program for many festivals and helps to ensure the festival's future success. African Beat's professional African musicians have world class experience and know how to engage and entertain any crowd.

"On behalf of the Department of Premier and Cabernet, Community Engagement and Events Division, thank you and congratulations on a sensational workshop at the Sydney International FIFA Fan Fest. Thank you so much for agreeing to take part in this inaugural event which was about so much more than just football; by celebrating community and cultures of the participating nations, African Beat's workshop was one of the absolute standouts of the event and you are doing a fantastic job in sharing your passion and enthusiasm for drumming." Kari Pihl and Kerrie Wilkinson, Sydney International FIFA Fan Fest

"UnitingCare’s Harris Community Centre has been fortunate to work with African Beat in various UPTown Festivals. These events have provided entertainment to thousands of people in our local community and African Beat has been one of our favourite performers over the years. Many members of the community have enjoyed the fun drumming sessions and even some have been given drums as a gift for their participation. Master Tuza’s performance is always energetic and full of rhythm.  We look forward to work with African Beat in our future projects." Oscar Sanchez, Community Development Worker, Harris Community Centre
