Tools and materials for you to build your community using rhythm, drumming, and dance.
The guidelines were developed over a period of time. The basic principles established in the early Earth Drum Council days grew roots as community members deepened them in practice, and then spread like flowers that were pollinated by a wide variety of people we met over the years.
Also included is our transcription of Fanga, the rhythm of welcome that was taught to us by the Grandfather of the African drum in America, Babatunde Michael Olatunji. When we met Baba in the early 1990s, he blessed our work and instructed us to teach this rhythm to as many people as possible.
