Learn a practical method for polyrhythmic group drumming

The ecstatic experience of expression through drumming and vocalization is magnified when we learn how to harmonize with others.  We'll explore a practical methodology for learning the archetypes of rhythm and how they can be used in combination with other players-of-music to help strengthen and heal not only our own energy, but those that are in vicinity of its influence.  

Bring a drum if you have one; bring two if you have one to share.  Bells and shakers are also good.

The time-tested polyrhythmic aesthetic and approach to music is cross-cultural, and along with your devotion and correct practice attracts wellness and augments any practice of stillness.   This session will not be a 'thunder-drum jam' but more a guided lesson.

I encourage you to bring a recorder to help learn.

    Afshin is an interesting teacher with a calm manner and great patience for the dyslexic drum student (me), as he instructs all in the fundamentals of this ancient practice.

    Afshin, is this drum and dance as before or solely drumming?

    I'm so excited that you will finally be leading a drum circle, afshin! I know you have so much to offer. Really looking forward to it!
