I LOVE DRUMMING...

I love drumming. I love Sounds of  rhythms, whether playing as a Solo in a hall with people of all ages, seen below in Liverpool , 1992.

Or at Nottinghill London Carnival, August 2012, below (pic by Urban Pulse Creative Media)
Or teaching and running workshops like here for Global Fusion Music and Arts event , May 2014 (pic by Claire Cole)

Or duets. THIS ONE with Nadia Al Faghih Hassan, the dynamic, innovative percussionist, below, London May 2014...filmed by Zoronita

Or with loads and loads of other percussionists. Seen here with ACD Arts at Canary Wharf, London May 2013. I am the one waving a hand. It is such an exhilarating sensation drumming with so many others. Truly Magical.

I love it all. Drums and percussion, the third component of music.
For Music is truly made up of three components : melody, harmony and rhythm/
EVERYONE SHOULD DRUM AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR...
DRUMMING IN COMMUNITIES IS THE BEST WAY OF ELIMINATING VIOLENCE.
IF WE ALL PLAYED LOVELY DRUMS INSTEAD OF SHOOTING GUNS, TELLING LIES, TAKING DRUGS AND  MURDERING CHILDREN THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE...
