Feel the beat

Published in Shape Magazine, June 2003 edition.

What would be more therapeutic than sitting in a circle beating out a rhythm as ancient as time? Drumming has been an integral part of African life for thousands of years as a means of celebrating life, love and unity. A guaranteed stress-buster, modern-day drumming is a great way to let loose, have fun and invigorate your mind while venting the frustrations of your day. "Rhythm is a universal language, which is why drumming creates a unity that transcends the barriers of culture, gender, age, religion, and hierarchy", says Catherine Welsh, director of Drumming SA - a Cape Town organisation that evolved out of a circle of friends who shared a passion for djembe drumming. since then, Drumming SA has expanded, and is now made up of a community of several hundred djembe drummers of various levels of experience. Whether you're a drumming natural or nervous novice, you can tap into the fun by joining one of their drumming sessions that'll leave you sweaty and exhausted, but grinning from ear to ear. It's a great way to meet people, to enjoy as a group of friends or as a corporate team-building exercise - and the group is now national.
