joy of djembe drumming
My mission is to promote the joy of djembe drumming in Houston, Texas. I combine the ancient rhythms and spiritual gifts of djembe drumming with modern day understanding. My approach to djembe drumming is one of healing, both on individual and cultural levels. I pay homage and respect to traditional tribal rhythms, but I am also open to experimentation and improvisation as ways to express the soul with the drum. I teach proper technique to prevent injuries or strain on the physical body. I teach respect for the instrument itself, and encourage all students to have a relationship with their drum. I believe that group drumming empowers deep connection with self, with others and with nature, bringing us in tune with the rhythms of life.
