Finding Ourselves in the Rhythm: Drumming, Spirituality, Culture, and Power.

Sat 2 PM | River

Matt Meyer

A chance for people of all skill levels to participate in hands-on rhythm-making. We’ll tour instruments from around the world and experience the connection of community music-making through different activities, stories, and discussions. We’ll also look at how rhythm and music intersect with culture, race, and power. Bring your own drum if you have one- for those who don’t, we’ll provide extras.
