Drumming From the Heart - for awareness, spirit, dance.

For everyone from beginner to advanced djembefola. Inspired by the centuries of profound music and spirit from traditional sources... from West Africa to bluegrass.
We support resources in the region including classes, workshops, drum circles, films, performances, visits from master musicians, community events, sources for authentic instruments.

Just a short time drumming or dancing with others and there is profound change, healing, attunement, joy.

Bring a drum like djembe or conga or ashiko if you have one. DRUMS PROVIDED. Beginner? Have no concern.. just bring a smile. Advanced? We'll give you roles that will help you grow. For ALL - we will focus on drumming relaxed and with beautiful sounds. We will work with rhythms from West Africa, Haiti, Cuba, Brazil, American Jazz and Blues.
