A flying start
Unbeatable Energy regularly provide drumming sessions at conferences and events to get them off to a flying start, energise weary delegates in the middle, or deliver the grand finale.
Alongside our off the shelf sessions detailed below, we are more than happy to craft experiences to suit your requirements. Just get in touch to talk about your own unique event.
Grand Drum Circle
This session works well as a highly invigorating and exhilarating finale to a conference.
All delegates participate in an African Drum Circle session, creating an exciting sound using African ‘Djembe’ hand drums, bells, shakers, wood blocks, and other percussion instruments. Delegates are taught a series of simple and accessible rhythms which they learn to weave together into a complex and fantastic sound. As the group becomes transformed into a powerful team playing multi-part rhythms, they will experience the collective power of group drumming.
Boomwhacker Conference Ice Breaker
A powerful energiser to kick off the day, wake people up after lunch, or provide a unique after-dinner slot.
Boomwhackers are coloured tubes that create different harmonic tones when played. As delegates identify how each colour creates its tone, they will be given simple rhythms to play in teams. Each team’s rhythm is layered together and within minutes a complex six-part rhythm is created. The Boomwhacker Conference Ice Breaker session is very successful in a conference theatre or cabaret seating format. It can very quickly provide the feel good factor, creating interaction and connection between delegates seated around the room.
Uniquely designed by Unbeatable Energy to encourage positive dialogue and collaboration between delegates who may not normally work together, this session is the perfect levelling activity for businesses and organisations who wish to integrate new staff or merge teams.
Using either African Drums or Boomwhackers, delegates learn the basics then split into smaller teams to devise a short rhythm or choreographed piece. The teams return to play together with each team showcasing what they have achieved. The final outcome is the creation of a musical piece, built up from the core rhythm and each group’s unique compositions.
