Anyone familiar with the ocean knows that it has a rhythm. It is like the heartbeat of the earth; the tides move in and out in waves, accompanied by the sounds of those swells lifting and falling on the rocks and beaches of the shoreline. Just watching and listening to the process is extremely relaxing, and is almost meditative in its effect.
Waterfront Charters are taking this rhythm to a whole new level: we are introducing our Rhythmic Sound Cruise option – a combination of relaxing ocean cruising on that constantly moving ocean and an interactive rhythmic drumming experience that will leave participants refreshed and rejuvenated. It’s a unique sound healing meditation that taps into the pulse and rhythms of nature, calming the mind and releasing tensions from the strains of 21st century life.
The experience is hosted aboard our unique twin-masted schooner Esperance, accommodating between 6 and 20 guests. (Larger groups of up to 80 participants can be organised aboard one of our other luxurious vessels.)
Once you have departed the quay at the V&A Waterfront and are moving gently through the swells of Table Bay, the experience starts off with an introduction to the basic rhythms of Africa and the world. Joining in the drumming experience interactively, each guest will feel the pulse of drumming calming and soothing, enhanced by the boat’s motion. The drumming moves on to a musical collaboration of various instruments, including guitars, that explores the different cultures of our Rainbow nation. The combination of meditation, rhythmic drumming and sound healing taps into the pulse and rhythm of the nature that surrounds you, leaving you calm and at peace with the world.
Booking for Esperance Djemba Drumming Cruises can be done online; for larger groups over 20 to 80 guests please get in contact with us to arrange.
