The Benefits of Drumming

By | Retreats Slider, Rhythm & Health, Vic Retreat Slider, Workshops-Slider

Drumming is good for you & your health!

We’re still buzzing from our awesome Summer Tribalism event in December. It was so much fun seeing everyone perform and jam together.

Did you know?

“West African drumming as a ‘shared energy’ experience has the power to positively impact participants’ lives, fostering cross-cultural understanding.
Exploring another culture helps to dispel myths and encourages discussion that may promote cultural diversity and respect in a multicultural Australia.” 🪘🇲🇱🇦🇺
This research article was written after a study that was conducted at one of our annual drumming retreats in Victoria.
New classes for 2023 start next week on the 16th of January.
