I'm coordinating a drumming workshop in Montreal with a drumming friend from out of town. Details are below:
Gaia's Heartbeat - Explorations in Drumming, Rhythm and Song
In this introductory workshop with Melissa MoonGoddess we will be exploring the basics of rhythm, basic hand drumming for energy raising, ritual and song/chant, and trance drumming techniques. Please join us as we listen to the the heartbeat of the mother--our first rhythm--and share the joy of our spirits in song.
When: Wednesday July 11th, 7pm
Where: Near Angrignon metro, Montreal
Cost: $15-25 sliding scale, you decide where you slide
Please bring drums and rhythm-makers, if you have them. The organisers will bring some for general use at the workshop as well.
To RSVP, for more information, or for details about the exact location of the workshop, please contact the workshop coordinator at ravenka(at)cosmic-muse(dot)com
Instructor Bio: Melissa MoonGoddess has been a performer and musician all of her life, but only discovered the ecstasy of drumming six years ago. Currently, she drums for two West African Dance & Culture Troupes, Adja and Shidaa, hosts a women's drum and dance gathering in her home twice a month, and drums for an exercise/dance class in the town where she lives. Melissa delights in helping others explore their edges, musically, and finding their own true voice in rhythm and song. Her life mantra is, "Don't hold back, fully be who you are!"
