Drum Cafe


Defying the cliché that business and pleasure should not be mixed, this power couple Dr. Vinod Hasal and Aliya Hasal goes all out to bring some fun at the places least expected-Offices.

Drum café is hip and unique way of connecting people and building teams in corporates in modern times.Inspired by the African tradition of communal drumming, the company proffers team building activities through drumming & boom-whacking (an instrument for nonmusicians)that unifies the crowd in a single beat, thus making corporate informal trainings fun-oriented.

Imagine luxuriating in a drumming music that breaks down all barriers, whether professional or personal, and fills you with a melody of unity, creativity and relaxation. This might sound utopian but Drum Cafe is transcending these corporate symposiums into collaborative gatherings.

Drum Cafe has been whipping up audience all over the world since 1996, during conferences and corporate events. According to Drum Cafe, drumming is the most effective team building activity. That may just be true. Drumming seems to be hardwired in our systems. Melodies and songs can evoke all kinds of motions, but drums go straight to the heart and make you want to move along.

Aliya Hasal, CEO, Drum Cafe, asserts,

Drumming is a great ice-breaker, and an effective way to get a diverse group of people communicating, listening to one another and working together as a team to create music. It evokes togetherness and leaves participants with a sense of belonging.

A Cafe Unifying Professionals

Drum Cafe’s drum circle creates successful group dynamics by facilitating everyone to play the same bass rhythm and listen to one another. Once the participants start clouting on the instruments, they reach the ALPHA state in no time, which enhances focus and creative ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking. They also learn the value of their own individual contribution within the context of the team. The analogy between the orchestra and the team provides great insight that helps in building noncompetitive community, communicating together to deliver harmonious, synergistic results. Drumming is therefore quintessential during long conferences – to revitalize and refocus participants between presentations or before speeches or awards.

Marching to the beat of one’s own drum

The company has made a business of tailoring its interactive drum experience to corporate functions.

While a session, aimed at improving leader- ship skills might allow group members to take turns directing beats and tempos, for example and the one aimed at diversity might focus on the unifying power of making music together. So usually outbound training programs include field trip, adventure activities or treks,but Drum Cafe revamped the bustle into an art. Whats seen is that a group of outstanding administrative staff from around the globe organizes hassle-free easy event where they step in with drums/boom whackers for everyone whether it’s a group of five, fifteen or fifteen hundred.
The arena is set up as per the company’s convenience. All you need to provide is chairs for this inexpensive activity making it ideal for corporate sessions like team training, conference energizers, corporate parties and breakout events.

Drum Cafe has also performed in entertainment events including full stage shows, product launches, company road shows and school workshops for merging the lines between spectators and performers. The company has beguiled keen interest of 500+ companies worldwide through interactive drumming sessions, exclusively focused on creating environment that transcends the spoken word. With a vision of making music as a moral law which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent, Drum Cafe is rhythmically marching towards success and drumming a new saga of employee training programs, which are more engaging, productive & collaborative.

Drumming requires no talent, aptitude or physical ability – just a sense of fun! Since we spend nine months of our lives six inches away from our mother’s beating heart, the beat of the drum is in all of us,

There’s no limit to the scope of work for people who are driven by their passion and drive to work in synthesis with others for life changing experiences.
