Mission Statement

Malta Tama Tnabar Association empowers people with various difficulties to succeed in society. We integrate drums and percussion instruments as creative learning tools that address life skills and enhance the mind, body and spirit towards a holistic life.

Description of Service

The milestone of the Malta Tama Tnabar Association is to enhance integration and inclusion in the community. Our service uses different and creative learning strategies to educate and train individuals. We believe that when people are exposed they discover their hidden potential. This service has developed specialized disciplines and techniques which help us to bring together, invigorate and genuinely welcome people.

Why Percussions?

Percussions are ancient tools of communication and community building. In Africa and in many other cultures around the world, before any major tribal decision is made, the community gathers together at the centre of the village to make music. This blissful making of music breaks down barriers and creates a sense of unity, thus enabling communities to become more effective and assertive


Our Activites

Our activities, which are based on experiential learning, empower people with various difficulties to integrate and succeed in society. The beat of a drum is an ancient and tribal human instinct. Employing three types of drums which are Snare, Bass and Tenor participants may take part in drums playing, movement and listening activities. In addition, the group may form an ensemble to play various pieces of music, take part in playing rhythm and experience improvisational music. While this is happening, they start to see others as capable and worthwhile people. Not only does this reduce social inhibition, it increases interaction and develops both empathy for others and increased self-esteem. Participants have invariably found this experience to be challenging, but fun and inspiring. As they learn to play together they develop team-spirit and experience.
