I love the sound of the Djembe drums. A few years ago I went to this concert and was so moved by the music. The name of this group is called the Djembabes and they are local here in Austin. One of the members of the group offered introductory lessons at her home. Several of my friends and I joined the class. We went weekly for a couple of months. I loved it! At the end of the session, we invited our families to come watch us perform together as a group. In the video that I have here at the 4:30 mark, is one of the songs we learned and performed. When I played the Djembe, I became one with the drum. I can't explain the feeling. It was really a spiritual event for me. Now every time I hear Djembe drums I get that feeling inside. It awakens something in me and I feel so alive.
This is the art that came out of listening to the music. I think it's a bit too busy and I should have stopped sooner but I just went with it.
