The Christmas party of Gesytec 2018

With a drumbeat we say goodbye to the year 2018. 

Our Christmas party this year was therefore a special event. Mrs. Schmithüsen from the CongaPercussionSchule in Aachen took our employee communication to a new level by letting us communicate with drums. 

In a drum course with Latin American congas and African djambés, we first familiarised ourselves with the sounds, drummed together, then in different teams, but always at the same time. This resulted in different rhythms. The harmony in the sound was only possible when we listened to each other and nobody tried to set the tone. 

This task can be quite a challenge for a multi-layered company with a college of people from different age groups and cultures, but we quickly found our rhythm together.

Below is a short excerpt from our first attempts at drumming as a team.

We would like to thank Mrs Schmithüsen from the CongaPercussionSchule in Aachen for this experience. Mrs. Schmithüsen offers different courses for beginners and advanced drummers, in groups as well as in individual lessons.
