The Drum Café Experience (Africa Day)

Feel the beat and drum your heart out through the ancient African tradition of drumming at The Drum Café. A memorable, energizing, therapeutic and motivating interactive experience, The Drum Café promotes a positive message of unity and collaboration. While playing the djembe together, we will learn to listen to each other, feel our collective rhythm and connect to our shared humanity. Also enjoy a short opening performance of Introduction to Dances from Africa by Sankofa Village. Several youths from the Black and African community come together to proudly reclaim and showcase their own heritage through traditional music, songs and dances from Africa.

The Drum Café is a part of Africa Day, a day of friendship at the 2021 Vancouver International Children’s Festival.
