Collectively, as the beats resonate around the room, energy levels rise and the mood lifts. ‘Rhythm is a universal language, a collaborative experience that transcends boundaries,’ explains Julie-Ann. ‘What people can achieve together is far greater than what they can achieve alone.’

Supposedly there are also mysterious health benefits to African drumming. ‘It’s been proven to boost the immune system,’ claims Julie-Ann. ‘It raises the endorphins, or happy hormones, and it’s a left brain/right brain balancing act, so gets people into an alpha state which is where they relax.’ After our session we’d have to agree: our final collaborative rhythm (the group had learned five different beats and pieced them together) sounds fantastic, like something performed in a flash mob in London’s Covent Garden. Everyone leaves the class smiling from ear to ear.
