What we're about

This group is open to anyone who is interested in experiencing the drum. Teacher Jesse Wright, who will lead the rhythm has performed and conducted workshops, facilitated drum circles, and promoted the percussive arts on the Alaska music scene for over 20 years. During the span of his career, he has been fortunate to learn from such diverse drummers as Francis Awe (Nigerian Talking Drum Ensemble), Junior (Gabu) Wedderburn-Afro Jamaican Drum Master and Abdoulaye Camara-Guinean West African Master Drummer. Because of Jesse's range of influences and multi-ethnic heritage (Yoruba, African-American, and Caribbean), Jesse's playing and teaching style reflects many diverse traditions throughout the African diaspora. Please join us ~ Location: 2400 McRae Road, Anchorage, Alaska Call Jesse @ 907-748-3243 or Patty @ 907-830-1424
