Talking Drum Circle

Using the metaphor of a drum as a healing and communication tool, Talking Drum Circles are used to build a bridge across a divide that results from historical factors such as colonisation, patriarchy, and other forms of oppression. 

Combined with storytelling, which is integral to African people’s lived experience, Talking Drum circles are used to heal the physical, psychological, cultural, and spiritual dimension of health. One of the ways of healing the divide within and amongst people comes through a re-membering of some aspects of lost cultural heritage and identity. In this way, Talking Drum Circles connect the past, present and future.
