Dancing & drumming


The Earth's heart beat & the drum comes from Native American traditions. But the drum itself, is in every culture and has quite the ? focus? reputation? admiration?......the Japanese have the Kodo {sp?} drums....a 'band' of nothing but drums and to listen is SO powerful!
back 'in the day' when I would travel around to different music festivals, in the parking lot, after the show, there would be drum circles. 5 to 25 {or more!} people with drums would show up and pick thier 'beat' -put all the 'beats' together and out comes some primal, trance inducing pulsating rhythm. Dance in the middle of the circle- and YES!.....you go 'out' somewhere.......some heavy magic in a drums beat.
