I originate musically from a band, a group / Tribe, so I organically, naturally gravitated towards that same method/
formula with Free To Be Me Drum Circle, meaning bass guitar, drum set, lead singer, and lead guitar…. a full Rock primitive Soulful
band / Tribe.
The Djuns, which are drums from Africa, made of solid wood and cowhide, are the bass guitar.
The Congas and the Bongos
are the lead singer, which is the songbird that sings in and out of all the rhythms.
The Djembe and timbale's are the lead guitar.
we have the natural rock and roll drum set, which completes the band, influenced with Rock, Soul, Funk, organic primal tribal primitive
And then the facilitator/ director, which leads the crowd participation into loving educational rhythmic games that
keep them interchanged with dance and song. They cannot resist to interact and reach down deep into their freedom. Each member of
the tribe that serve the music, along with the guest and volunteers, are those who eat, sleep, and drink music / serving...... for
them, like me, are the catalyst, the train. Then everybody jumps on, while complementing each others rhythmic personalities, like
no other. It becomes one phenomenal elation of emotional, sacred healing.
Corny, but true. So get ready to rock and roll and groove…
move to the trueness of your natural ability to drum.
