It transcends gender, race, age and all religious beliefs. It’s an activity we have done since the dawn of time. Drumming is fun, it brings people together. It creates communities. Drumming puts the person in the centre of the experience, it allows them to express their creativity, have fun and build confidence. Drumming can also be meditative, inducing relaxed mental states that reduce anxiety, tension, negative feelings and trauma. We drum and we love it! Email juliafrier@hotmail.co.uk.
