The Drum Cafe are experts in the exciting genre of Fusion/Crossover. We stage performances that are an ultimate meeting between ancient and modern, Western and African. We blend elements from the various African traditional groups and mix genres. As part of the international trend to celebrate cultural diversity, the Drum Café’s Fusion/Crossover blends the ancient forms of performance, the achievements of modern technology and the cultural expression of different traditions. Elements that were previously seen as separate interact and perform in a new “language”, bringing unity in diversity.

The result is an eclectic and interesting combination of flavours, tailored to meet your needs. In our custom-made events, we can use or highlight crossover elements.

The Drum Cafe’s top Fusion/ Crossover acts include:

Basadi Le Meropa (“Women of the Drums”). The Drum Cafe’s all-woman drum, dance, song and marimba group. Expect an original blend of the very best in Western and African musical traditions – African djembe drums and traditional marimbas creating trance-like rhythms.
