Jembe Ashok
Jembe Course by Ashok


This introduction course is to enable everyone to learn to play the Jembe - an african drum and use that as a medium to find the joy of playing together. This is typically held as a 8 or 16 session for 2 hours each, held on the weekends.

No prior musical background is necessary. And if you don't have a jembe, they would be provided for the workshop duration.

Jembe Workshop by Ashok


Music is about discovery – finding our own rhythm when we are alone or when we are part of a group. This workshop uses rhythm and music as a medium for team building and leadership skills. It can be structured as either a half day session or a full day session.

This jembe workshop is ideal for corporates, NGOs and education institutes in small group settings.

Children Workshop by Ashok


Theatre and music are both wonderful mediums to assist young people to address social, cultural and personal concerns. I have extensively worked with children and young adult in different educational context - to allow them to express, explore and enhance their personal & group skills.

These can be designed as informal play-oriented sessions or formal theater or music sessions, say educational drama.

This course is designed for upcoming actors who have some acting experience in theatre or film medium. This will be held as an intensive workshop of about 15 sessions of 3 hours each, across two weeks. The number of actors will be restricted to 15 to ensure personalised attention can be provided.

This will give each actor an opportunity to work on their specific areas of focus and improvement e.g. body language, voice and modulation, effective dialogue delivery etc.

Utsmaya Workshop by Ashok


This unique workshop experience is to enable anyone to flourish. I believe each of us have a seed in us that if provided the right nourishment and support can flower in its own unique way. In this workshop, we use three lenses - three different art forms of Roleplay (Theatre), Storytelling and Jembe (Music) - to get started on this journey. Each art form is used in a session as the chosen medium for expression, exploration and discovery.
