Drum Circle

    The Drum Circle is for participants to interact and play at their own pace. All ages may take part. Rhythms are performed as exampled in Kenne's book, "Drum Circle Cookbook", according to a persons ability. Success is measured by everyone participating and doing their best.
    Young children are entertained and rhythmically energized with Kids Rhythms and Youth Beat programs where Kenne uses pieces and activities from his book "RhythmiKidz", to teach kids about rhythm and culture through collaborative drumming.
    Authentic indigenous rhythms are performed in the oral tradition. Songs and rhythm games are played giving everyone a dynamic part.
    Physically challenged participants are encouraged to play and share their ideas.
