Shumba Arts offer high quality, creative workshops, classes and courses in drumming, music, dance and song for schools, colleges, universities, business and community groups.


At the heart of our work is a passion for the transformative power of celebratory arts.  We draw upon our extensive knowledge of rhythms, dances and songs from the African Diaspora to create workshops that build self-confidence, teamwork, self-expression and ignite a passion for life!  We are also commited to building relationships with people and places in Africa through our "Shumba in Africa" projects.
