West African Percussion at Drum Sundays

This Drum Sunday will focus on rhythms from West Africa taught by Afia Walking Tree. Bring a djembe, ashiko or conga - all other hand drums welcome! There will be a limited number of drums to borrow on a first come first serve basis.

About Afia Walking Tree

Afia’s vision for transformative cultural healing across multi-ethnic, intergenerational communities has been an anchor for much of her life’s work. With roots born out of deep African Diasporic ethno musicological spiritual and cultural lineage in Jamaica, Afia has spearheaded many initiatives which bring women and youth into empowerment and voice.

As an educator, Afia utilizes African Diasporic drumming, singing, movement, and the honoring of lineages as vehicles so that we might devote ourselves to our destinies, and cultivate new tools for our re-emergence as whole beings. Dedicated to earth stewardship, Afia is creating sustainable landscapes that allow for us to give to mama in ways that nourish, recycle and utilize resources that harness clean practices including: “trade villages,” water resourcing, worm composting, local home-owner food cropping, earth drum journeys where we listen to the earth and respond with our tree voice, the drum.

Cost is $25 - $10 (sliding scale);
Under 12 free;
No one turned away for lack of funds

Class is open to ALL LEVELS.
