Drumming with Pashyo

Drumming is an ancient medicine that has been used by indigenous cultures around the world to transform depression, stress and other difficult emotions into bliss and ecstasy. Drumming in groups allows us to connect with other like-minded people, forget our problems and express our creativity. While we learn African rhythms and master the fundamentals of music, we acquire a skill that we can take home and keep enjoying.
