Hello and welcome to the New Look Rhythmbridge website.

Rhythmbridge was established in 1999 by me, Paul Dear. (Photo Below courtesy of Mark Archibald)

Over the years I  have worked with Master Drummers from Senegal, Ghana and Guinea in West Africa, Morocco in North African and Bahia in Brazil.

I was a founder member of The Kajamor Family. This group was brought together to promote the traditional Serouba and Bougarabou music of Casamance, Senegal.

I have also peformed with Magribibeat, Beyondrum and Tomorrow’s Ancestor.

I was one of the first and am now one of the most experienced Arthur Hull trained Drum Circle Facilitators in the UK. I have developed my facilitation skills in a wide variety of settings including Educational, Corporate and Community.

I now manage the program in the UK that helps Arthur to deliver his world renowned UK Playshop

I am, according to one of the recipients of my work, ‘a charismatic workshop leader who delivers sessions with warmth, humour and a high degree of professionalism.’

Since 1999 Rhythmbridge has delivered thousands of workshops to a wide diversity of communities and continues to be one of the most innovative drum companies around. As a company Rhythmbridge can deliver West African Drumming Workshops, West African Dance, Expressive Rhythm Stories and Community Drum Circles to Schools, Companies and Community Groups all across the UK and Internationally.
