I am happy for you that you are bringing this gift to your nation.
I was born Pinay (Filipina) but raised very American.
I began drumming West African style and our group did a lot of cultural outreach.
Then I moved to Japan and learned taiko drumming. When I moved to NYC, I became part of a performing group that also did many cultural outreach programs.
There is a history of sexism in both styles of drumming and being part of the shift in consciousness about gender was a big partpf my friends' and my experience,
Often I helped lead drum circles for women's and youth self-awareness and spiritual retreats. The vibrations of the drum clear so many stuck energies from our systems that profound healing takes place.
I feel you are a wonderful fountain of healing for your people and I honor you.
