New England’s Premier Hand Drumming School serving the rhythmic community for over 27 years. DrumConnection offers excellence in djembe and dunun instruction from private classes to exciting workshops and performances. The art of drumming has, in various forms, become an integral component of cultures the world over, from East Asian war drumming , to the talking drums of Sri Lanka and West Africa. These instruments are not only universal in nature, but they are tied to our very humanity at the deepest level.

DrumConnection (Boston, MA) links students with a very specific part of our human heritage - the djembe drum music of the old Malian empire (Guinea, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast). DrumConnection offers a unique experience into the rhythms of the continent. You may be transformed.
