OR
"WE ARE THE DRUM" is a hand-drumming workshop (and dun-dun/bell for those interested) starting with the basics created with a drum language designed by Babatunde Olatunji and moving into West African and Afro Caribbean rhythms with the emphasis on pulse, flow and developing the awareness that as drummers, and musicians in general, we walk a fine line between playing and being played by the music. Making music together involves a collective awareness, a communal agreement as to how we relate to and use the flow of time, choosing moments of sound and silence to create rhythm. Our goal as a drum ensemble is to become one drummer with as many hands as are playing.

Notes:

Djembes will be on hand for class use and will also be available for purchase.
Fee: $72.00
