 Drumming is an ancient musical tradition that many cultures around the world use to energize, build unity, focus attention, relax and heighten creativity. No matter what our age and ability, whenever we hear drumming, we all begin to move to those universal rhythms inside us. A community drum circle is a group of people who come together to make in-the-moment music. With a few rhythm starters, the circle begins to experience the fun, excitement and humor that collaboration brings. Participants will experience hands on instructions and playing techniques for instruments of the Jembe orchestra. Participants will be exposed to the many uses of the West African drums, music, dance movements, the history, songs, storytelling, choreography, and cultural lessons.
