Discover the rhythm of your soul through African drumming, music, art and culture

Akwaaba ("uh-kwaa-buh")...meaning welcome in the Akan language from Ghana, Akwaaba's vision is to use traditional African drumming and music as a tool to promote harmony and cultural understanding within the West Australian community.​


Established back in 1996 by Kofi (Paul) Osei, Akwaaba has been entertaining a wide variety of audiences for over 20 years with energetic, powerful and interactive performances, drum circles and workshops. Our use of traditional African hand drums and other percussion instruments bring alive the rhythms of Africa.  

 

As well as offering workshops and performances, we also strongly support and encourage the continuation of traditional African art and handicrafts and sell a wide range of hand made African products through our shop at the Wanneroo Markets.

Akwaaba will take you on a unique journey of discovery to find the rhythm that lies within each soul.​

Akwaaba specialises in:

  • Drumming workshops

    • festivals and community events

    • weekly adult classes (beginners to advanced)

    • school holiday events and OSHC 

    • schools and early learning centres
