Have you RSVP'd for one of the Meetups yet?

Yes!

How did you hear about us?

From funkmaster facilitator, Marcus Fung.

Do you have a drum or percussion instrument? If so tell us about it!

A set of djundjuns from the Ivory Coast (that I co-own with some of the women in Lomani Mundi), two djembes, a Lali Ni Meke from Fiji, an Udu, a Kpanlogo (also co-owned), a native frame drum, boom whakers, claves, bells, maracas, etc.

Do you play other instruments, if so which?

I can really belt out a tune in the shower!

What are your goals as a drummer/musician?

To connect with others, practice patience with myself, open myself to a lifelong journey of learning, and learn to embrace my own song. Also, to make some phat beats with the women of Lomani Mundi (women's world percussion group).

Introduction

To meet and play with diverse drummers. To learn and perform drum songs from around the world. To help create a women's drum community in Edmonton and surrounding areas.
