Building teams

One beat at a time.

“If you have a heartbeat, you have rhythm”

Why Drum Cafe?

Power of drumming

Drumming is an age-old way of communicating and of forming and strengthening a community.

It taps into creativity

The participants are taught to stop thinking and to feel the rhythm! The left and right hemispheres of the brain are used simultaneously. This stimulates creative or ‘out of the box‘ thinking.

Drumming leads to unity and team building

This is an effective way to allow a diverse group of people to communicate with each other, listen to each other and work together as a team and make music.

Learning and insight

The participants learn how important it’s to work together and listen to each other, and the importance of their own individual contribution within the context of the team.

Stimulates, gives relaxation and makes people receptive

It quickly puts people in a state where they are focused and clear.


We let your employees work together and listen to each other, in this way they experience a sense of pleasure and involvement.

What They Say About Drum Cafe...

Michael Langer – Vice President Technology Test & Certification Liberty Global

I invited the Drum Cafe team to my team event for a first time all staff meeting to perform after dinner as a surprise activity. It was big fun and I got very good feedback from the team. I think it is a perfect instrument to combine good entertainment with engagement of the individuals. Everyone can be reached by Music and thus this is a great experience for the team to work in harmony. Definitely recommend to invite Drum Cafe especially in cases where a new team needs to grow into a unity. Fun, great entertainment with high level of team engagement, harmony across the group. Thanks again for your short notice flexibility. Fulfilled its purpose. My team event was because of your contribution a big success.

Drum Cafe lets you experience what you can accomplish when you make music together, how you can respond to each other and what you can achieve (more) together than alone, but also what it sounds like when there are no proper agreements for cooperation, and what fun it gives when you play together. The team on stage was energetic and invited to participate. The ‘assignments’ were fun and varied. Drum Cafe is energizing and inspiring. And to be recommended in a team development project. Making music together touches each other in the heart, it connects, gives pleasure and releases something in teams. And how nice it is to hear how beautiful it sounds when you work well together. A very positive experience.

760 participants, Leeuwenhorst, Noordwijkerhout Our goal was to engage the guests in something fun but also meaningful Drum Cafe did this perfectly. The energy in the room during the drumming session was incredible, Patrick and his team connected the fun elements of the drums with the message behind our organizations – connecting and working together to change the world. It was very entertaining, full of energy, inclusive and with a message that perfectly matched ours. Everyone I spoke to absolutely loved it, it was truly a fantastic evening, and the drumming session was an excellent addition – thank you so much for being part of our conference. One word: perfect, couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you.

This is what we are talking about!


It all started in the early 90s when Patrick Tromp came into contact with the African drum. 

After playing on the street for a while, he started taking percussion lessons from both Dutch and African teachers and in 1995 he went to the African continent for the first time. He came back with 20 drums, that was the start of teaching and giving workshops himself.

As an experienced teacher, he transfer the African rhythms with passion in a simple and playful way.

“If you have a heartbeat, you have rhythm”

“Everything is right, nothing is wrong”

It is mainly about enjoying, working together and laughing together and the feeling to get connected that naturally arises when you play the drums with each other.

In collaboration with African artists we provide sessions for companies, schools and individuals party’s, where participants, by drumming themselves and laughing together, build energy and create solidarity.

Since 2008 we have been a member of Drum Cafe, an international organization that provides interactive drum sessions for companies and conferences and is an innovator in the field of integrating rhythm as part of: togetherness, inspiration, energy and fun. We represent the Benelux, but we have also given sessions in Austria, Hungary, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Romania, Denmark and Japan in collaboration with other Drum Cafes.
