The Africa Center Berlin organizes a series of drum- workshops where the refugees from African countries will work as a team. On Friday, February 15th the last workshop will take place in Afrika Center on Hohenstaufenstrasse 3. The event starts at 6:30 pm and can accommodate up to 15 participants. Instruments are provided.

The main idea behind the drum- workshop is the intercultural education in which music connects people coming from various backgrounds while working out the diversity of cultures and values together through music. The contacts with the foreign culture are enabled through the musical means and the “one-world-idea” is promoted. During the 1, 5 hours long course, a short composition will be prepared in the group and presented to the public at the end of the workshop series.

The facilitator of the workshop Ayo Nelson-Homiah comes originally from Gambia. He has developed a unique, interactive and instructive style of introducing students and adults of all ages to the value in “Working in Rhythm”. By this means he aims to give the participants the positive support for past trauma and to create the friendly environment for creating new relationships amongst the intercultural group.
