About the workshop
DRUMS OF THE WORLD is an exciting interactive drum workshop.
You don’t need to bring anything – all drums and equipment will be provided.
Suitable for all levels from beginners to more experienced players.
Our group is made up of friendly percussionists, drummers and others interested in exploring the world of rhythms.
All ages 18+
Under-18s may attend if accompanied by an adult – please contact us first.
These workshops take place at the wonderful Green Note in Camden – London’s most celebrated live music venue for roots and world music.
Your ticket includes free refreshments (choice of teas or coffees) on arrival. Choose from the selection on offer at the Green Note.
GREEN NOTE is an award-winning live music venue and café-bar, located less than 5 mins walk from Camden Town tube station.
During the workshop participants have the opportunity for hands-on experience with the percussion instruments and the workshop involves playing rhythms together as a group. Participation is a part of the workshop but no-one will be ‘picked out’ to perform in front of the group. It is all very friendly and relaxed.

This is a new workshop with new content. You don’t need to have been to a previous workshop in this series, each workshop is a standalone session suitable for all levels.
This session will be exploring the rhythms of the cajon.
The cajon (box drum) is originally from Peru and traditionally played in Afro-Peruvian folk music. It is usually played with the hands, but other implements such as brushes may also be used to create different textures. The cajon is a versatile drum found in many contemporary musical settings, including jazz, folk, flamenco and latin genres. Find out more
