i have a 'Ramadan' Djembe; an ashiko; two native american hand drums (one buffalo, one deerskin; which i constructed); one hand made wood marimba; various smaller instruments: rattles, bells, shikere & ankle rattles (also made these); gourd played with metal comb; a vietnamese style castanet.
i love gathering up with others who enjoy the rhythm , the resonance created, the camaraderie, being in a circle , the healing, the laughter, pure fun and freedom of expression. and i especially love, if we play long enough, that certain point of everyone losing themselves to the Heartbeat. it produces exhilaration and much laughter and LOVE.
Love to play!.
BADCM , you are inspiring and enthusiastic. thank you all for my first full moon circle with you. you were great company! i appreciated the experience you share, your love for drumming, your community. thank you for being so welcoming.
