Instant Team Work – Group dynamics

90% of the people think they cannot sing or play an instrument. A few “extraordinary, crazy people” will show you how wrong this statement is. They “wake up” teams or groups (made up of a few or hundreds of people) by making them play together African percussion and traditional instruments of any kind.

They suggest various techniques to help all participants “get into the rhythm” of frenzied sessions during which people find their own pace, while developing their collective creativity. People “give everything they have” (actually body and soul) in a field that is usually entirely new to them, and discover the joy of celebrating shared success together.
