    What we're about

    Starting this group because I love to play African hand drums, especially the ensemble tradition (6+ players) of the Mandinka culture. Have been playing djembe for 20 years and dununs for about 15 as a light-hearted and profoundly musical, consciousness healing art form. Have put together bands, performed, arranged and sung in this tradition.

    Now gathering interested adults of all ages to explore this amazing music. I'm a boomer woman, my career is in the creative arts, I love to teach and play play play the drums! This music has improved my working memory, restores my peace of mind, is a great release of stress and oh so awesome much fun!

    No musical experience is required. The spirit of the drum will grow naturally inside your heart and body-mind. Come explore the power of the drum, the heartbeat of the planet, the rhythms of life!
