In August last year, our drumming teacher Laura went and spent a week at Ramingining School, Arnhem Land, in the Northern Territory, running drumming workshops with the students there.
“The highlight for me was seeing how integral music and dance is within the community and their long-spanning culture. I wanted to try and break down any barriers and allow the students to express themselves in their traditional style of dance accompanied by African drums. Music is transcendent through cultures and connects all different types of people. It is a language on its own.”
Thank you Ramingining School for inviting us to visit you, we are so glad to have been able to share with you the djembe love!
We love taking our music and visiting communities all over Australia; if you are interested in having a drumming workshop at your school, kindergarten or community group, then email us, no matter how far or wide you may be!
