The Spirit of Drumming and Drum Technique

Presented by Muruga Booker.

Muruga will teach polyrhythms, drum textures, hand and stick techniques, and time signatures, and discuss trance drumming and creating ambiance by drumming the space as well as the note. The class will include aspects of Kundulini and Nada yoga (the inner divine sound), and will integrate hatha yoga stretching and breathing to achieve health and maximum relaxation for better drumming and musical expression. Kundulini is the inner conscious uncreated energy of creation, and Nada is the sound of the energy. We will tap into our Kundulini and Nada energy, and take this into trance drumming, breathing and chanting through a spontaneous Kundalini experience for health, creativity, and cosmic oneness of being. This interactive workshop will include lecture and live performance. Drums and percussion will be provided BUT people should be encouraged to bring their own drums.
