Shumba Arts offer high quality, creative experiences in drumming, music, dance, song and crafts

for schools, colleges, universities, business and community groups.

At the heart of our work is a passion for the transformative power of celebratory culture. 

We draw upon our extensive knowledge of rhythms, dances, songs and music from the African Diaspora

to create workshops that build self-confidence, teamwork, self-expression and ignite a passion for life!
