Rhythm is connecting. Each participant listen attentively, act, react, get involved individually and at the same time stand behind the common goal – The overall composition.
African drums impress with their immense diversity and forms of expression which is probably also why the fascination for African rhythms became so widespread in Europe during the 1980s.
Drum together, strong together
Playing in a group with different rhythms which all complement each other creates a sense of togetherness. The rhythm sequences require coordinated playing as only the group as a whole can join these individual elements to form a complete melody. In drumming, the participants’ awareness of themselves and the group members also increases. It is a process of social learning in the group. Rhythm is a language which can express feelings and rhythm as speech form promotes communication. Drumming does not require any prior musical knowledge or talent!
