Tam Tam Drummers are Bringing The Beats Back to Animal Kingdom this Season
It is a joyous day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park as one of our favorite entertainment acts has returned – TAM TAM DRUMMERS!
We popped round to Animal Kingdom to see their noon performance and it definitely left a big smile on our faces.
For those unfamiliar, the Tam Tam Drummers perform several shows throughout the day.
These take place at the Harambe Marketplace which is in the Africa section of the theme park.
You’ll find the colorful stage right before you get to the line of Kilimanjaro Safaris.
If you’ve never seen the Tam Tam Drummers before then they’re definitely worth checking out.
These impressive drummers don authentic dress. They drum, dance and really energize the crowd.
Oh and as you can see, they’re big on audience participation!
Performances take place daily.
We’ve got a look at the showtimes which area as follows:
- 10 am
- 11 am
- 12 pm
- 1 pm
- 2 pm
- 3 pm
- 4 pm
It really is incredible the way this group really livens up the Animal Kingdom crowd.
This is a great way to start the day. I regularly love to stop by Kusafiri for an African Iced Coffee and a Colossal Cinnamon Roll before checking out the show.
The stage is also located near to Tusker House meaning that you can also schedule in a performance before or after your table service meal.
Here you can see one of the entertainers wrangling the crowds!
We love his colorful straw skirt!
A little audience member was so excited she walked straight up to say “Hello!”
It was a very cute moment!
Though there are designated showtimes, the Tam Tam Drummers will often wait a bit for crowds to gather!
But with the sun shining and the colorful surroundings, we didn’t mind the wait.
We even used this as an opportunity to capture some videos of Tam Tam’s performance which we’ll share with you below.
It looks like they are getting ready for showtime.
Here they are readying the drums!
The sound of the percussion from these traditional instruments is so relaxing and calming.
The performance features four drummers and an emcee of sorts!
They will vary the line-up of songs they’re performance meaning that you don’t get the same show twice!
Now let’s dive in and take a look at some of the videos we took!
The first video below gives you a sense of the fun audience participation.
Wait until you see the little boy showing off his dance moves in the video below.
Oh, and did we mention the drummers are also incredible singers. You can see the whole team in action in the video below!
We are so excited to see more and more Disney entertainment acts returning. We’re sure that there’s more on the horizon so keep following along with us here at MickeyBlog for further Disney World news and updates.
