Bring your friends and family for a great day out grooving to the rhythm of the city.

Culture Beats features a demonstration by local artists Tamashii Taiko Drummers and Ānuanua Cook Island Drum Group, with special international appearances from Ju Percussion Group (Taiwan) and Afrique en Cirque (African drumming from Canada). Get your boogie on with a show that is guaranteed to get your feet tapping, your hands clapping and your body moving to the pulse of life!

After Culture Beats stay for City Beats and join our drum lesson of epic proportions.

Demetrius Savai’inaea and his crew will teach you a unique composition created just for City Beats. 

Bring any percussion instrument of choice – poi, rhythm sticks, drum, triangle, cowbell, pot, plastic bucket or just your bare ol’ hands  – and be part of Auckland’s biggest ever mass drumline, beating right in the heart of the city.
