Production of percussion shows and workshops


Experience the
Transformative Power
of Rhythm.


Malicounda offers team-building sessions and corporate events that are fun and invigorating. Inspire and unify your team with activities fostering creativity and motivating team spirit of employees. Our activities are according to the needs and objectives of your organization. No musical experience is required.

Malicounda aims to bring out the best in a team so that its members can collaborate effectively to creatively solve problems.  By working together in a totally different context, drum circles promote self-development, positive communication and HOW LEADERSHIP skills.

Individuals quickly become part of a group with a common goal as the team invents their rhythm structure and becomes a single unit beating together.

With a little attention, we realize very quickly that rhythm is all around us. Working with rhythm in concert with others improves productivity, focus, and group outcomes. The essence of teamwork is unity. 

Let’s make this experience unforgettable with the power of music! 


The success of a drum circle is based on listening to others. To achieve communication objectives, listening is the key to success. Among other benefits, the participants will have the opportunity to de-stress while stimulating their imagination.


Experience the transformative power of rhythm during your next holiday office party!

A drum circle is an invigorating and unique experience accessible to all. These sessions are a perfect fit for an office party or dinner and can be fit into any timeframe according to your needs. In addition, Malicounda can provide a percussion performance with your staff volunteers and guided by the Malicounda team!

Malicounda programs facilitate a deeper connection and a sense of playfulness among employees. A great way to start a new year, build consensus around shared goals or celebrate accomplishments.

During the sessions, Malicounda encourages and inspires each participant to make their own contribution to the simple rhythm activities using drums and other rhythmic instruments from around the world or by simply using his or her own body.

The session can be conducted as part of a conference or social event, or at the beginning of a meeting or professional development session. It can be customized as a 30-60 minute, half-day or full-day session. We have many options from which you can choose or we can tailor a program to perfectly meet your needs. Enjoyment guaranteed.


  • Drumming

    • Drumming enhances the ability to focus the mind, stimulate cognitive development, and release stress. It also activates multiple brain systems.
    • Drumming increases self-esteem and results in a sense of empowerment and enhanced ability to focus.
    • Drumming allows people to recognize new possibilities and discover their own natural talent that is inherent in everybody.
  • Enjoyment

    Beating the drum is fun, exciting, and freeing. It is accessible to all. The shared experience of a large or small group exploring and creating rhythm together is a really fun way to get to know your fellow workers, break down inhibitions, and release tension. A drum circle is a unique experience. Enjoyment is guaranteed!

  • Music

    • Playing musical instruments can improve fine motor coordination, help to focus and give self-discipline, and this will help children with behavioral problems.
    • Playing music helps participants develop self-esteem, as they feel a sense of accomplishment in producing a rhythm or melody.
    • Music motivates participants to participate in a group activity and usually produces a positive emotional response.
    • Music engages a variety of learning styles, integrates multiple human intelligences and creates a communal experience.
  • Rhythm

    • Music and rhythm access your brain through your emotions.
    • It allows children to make connections between language, cognition, expression and culture. The rhythm helps to increase motivation, interest, and enjoyment.
    • Rhythm improves an individual’s range of motion, joint mobility/agility/strength, balance, coordination, respiration patterns, and muscular relaxation.
    • Rythm helps to develop brain waves. The body has a natural rhythm and when the children hear the external rhythm it makes them feel in harmony and synchronized. It makes them feel balanced. Thinking is clearer and they are not distracted.

I was thoroughly impressed and pleased by the workshop. I think that it brought people out of their comfort zone and encouraged them to experience themselves and each other in a very different way than what they are used to.
