If I were a voodoo-hoodoo, my more annoying clients might experience the mysterious onset of a headache around 7:30 on a certain week night.

But the only violence I like is the kind that doesn’t hurt anything.
So Taiko is perfect. Thus far, we’ve learnt the basics of the Miyake and Yatai-bayashi rhythms, fantastic workouts for the body, brain and voice.
Looks like fun, BB. Hope you’re enjoying it.–Patti
It’s great fun, Patti. We laugh a lot. 😀
Sounds like wonderful fun, bb!
It is, M-R. And very therapeutic. 🙂
I would find it so, I’m sure. All that bashing ! – heaven!
I can see how really throwing yourself into the beat, rhythm, and energy of drumming can release stress, anger, frustration, … not to mention being a lot of fun. Sounds like a win-win …. well, except for the aforementioned headache 😉
😀 The best part is you switch off completely, Joanne. You have to to get everything to work together! 🙂
… and that’s the really hard part – switching everything off!!
Enticing drums, BB. They’d be perfect to celebrate the setting sun at the weekly drum circle on the beach.
What a setting that would make, Nancy. Our classes are housed in the bowels of an old warehouse complex, where we can’t disturb the neighbours.
Great way to work it on out. Making noise, striking something….good for the soul, too….have fun!
Very good for the stressed soul, Cynthia. 🙂
fantastic bb 🙂 and what fun!
I can highly recommend it, Gabe, and you have the perfect property for practicing. 🙂
This sounds so awesome. I need this.
Try it – it’s such fun 😀
I remember seeing an African drum band at the theatre many years ago and I absolutely loved it! What a brilliant way to work out 😀
The African drummers are amazing and play with such abandon and happy energy.
