What you'll do
The frame drum is the oldest known drum and has been found all over the world from Africa, Turkey, Ireland, Russia, Greece, Mexico, Chile, Nepal, Italy, India and so many more, some even 8000 years old! Although the frame drum is universal, this workshop borrows with gratitude from Sioux and Lakota techniques. During the workshop you can expect to have a lot of fun with the creation process. From weaving, wrapping and uniting the skin to the frame. You will also make a drumstick to create the rhythm of your drum. Throughout the workshop we will learn and share songs to sing with your drum.
A musician, entrepreneur & drum maker. Raised in a traditional Bapedi family of South Africa. Surrounded by medicine people in the family, the drum was at the heart of all ceremonies & celebrations. This led to his passion for music & a curiosity to learn various musical instruments; their origins, sounds & construction. It was the heartbeat of the drum that called to him. Started off by making drums for Dinaka (traditional dance), then Djembes (indigenous to Africa). Later discovered frame drum. My training & experience contributes to love & understanding of Mother Earth & gratitude to life.
