JOHN BOONE Henderson

Rhythm Interactive is an award winning, immersive drum workshop, run by percussionist John Boone, who surprises his audiences by making them play the Djembe along with him without speaking a single word.

John Boone and his team perform for corporate events and schools around the country, sometimes doing up to three shows a day. A few weeks ago John and his colleague Lucie held their largest ever workshop - placing a percussion instrument on the seats of over 2000 Ted X attendees in the Aotea Centre.

We sent self-diagnosed rhythm-phobe Anthonie Tonnon to see the Ted X show and learn to jam on the Djembe with John and Lucie.
