This course — taught by Wise Mecca Mingo, I Am Arts cofounder and percussionist —allows families to become indirectly aware of earth science and math while utilizing a neat and fun approach to traditional west African drumming. The healing aspects of the drum can help to release vibrational energy and strengthen their social and emotional well being. The Djembe drum uses polyrhythms to organize the rhythms it produces by divides the hands into equal parts when striking the drum.
