Group drumming brings adults and teens together and celebrates the diversity of our cultures.

People who embrace drumming in a group say it's a transforming experience, sparking creativity and releasing pent-up emotions by connecting people together. Some believe it makes you feel good because the rhythms of the drumming resonate with your own body's rhythms.
