***Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts with the creative team, DJEMBE! The Show will be postponed until the 2018-2019 season. The team is looking forward to premiering the production in Chicago. Further details will be announced soon. 


The international, immersive, critically-acclaimed smash-hit, DJEMBE! The Show, comes to North America

After critical acclaim and box office success in Europe, DJEMBE! The Show announces its US Premiere at the Apollo Theater in Chicago.
A group of world-class African and international musicians perform with a surprising mix of instruments, and the audience is part of the band! With a djembe drum for each spectator to play along, audiences of all ages will enjoy this innovative fusion of music, rhythm and culture.
DJEMBE! The Show is a not-to-be missed, unique experience, that brings a rich, meaningful and powerful set of universal values to the hearts of the audience. Each audience member will have use of a djembe drum for the concert – handmade in West Africa – and will learn to play along with world-class musicians to an exciting mix of Western traditions and favorite hits from around the world. In addition to traditional African beats, audiences will drum along to the music of artists like Prince, Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Bob Marley, Angelique Kidjo, and Pharrell Williams, among others. The show explores the story of our shared humanity as well as the influence that Africa has had on world and pop music. Join the energy, emotion and joy of a show chosen by Oprah to open her Super Soul Sessions at UCLA for a live audience of 1750 people


We Bring The Drums,

YOU Bring The BEAT


Get ready for a night of pure exhilaration. Your djembe awaits you. Before you know it, you’ll have learned to play your favorite tunes with top musicians.


Drumming has an amazing power to awaken our natural rhythms and sweep away inhibitions. You will feel the positive energy. When you leave the theater, you’ll take that with you.
