The Spirit of the Drum Lecture Series

Join John Santos for this unique 6-week lecture series. True to African tradition, the drum is still the heartbeat of many working class communities in the African diaspora. In this series, we will enter these communities through video clips, photos and rare recordings, as well as take an up-close look at several of the rhythmic instruments used in diverse drumming traditions found in the Americas. We'll also discuss the commonalities, connections and differences between regional forms and how these threatened art forms are the expressive voices of resistance as they have been since colonial times. These are not hands-on, playing classes although some demonstration of rhythms and instruments will be included.

DRUM! Night 2013

In 2010 the editors of DRUM! Magazine staged the first DRUM! Night festival (originally known as Rhythm Night) as a fundraiser for Richie Hayward, the late drummer for Little Feat, who died of liver cancer the night before the benefit show. Nonetheless, drummers from throughout the West Coast came together to raise much-needed funds for Hayward’s family, and the DRUM! Night tradition was born.

Since then DRUM! Night has featured many top performers in the drumming field, including David Garibaldi, Terry Bozzio, Thomas Lang, Kenny Aronoff, Thomas Pridgen, Marco Minnemann, Queen Cora Dunham, Tim Yeung, and Raul Rekow and Karl Perazzo.

Join DRUM! this year, with performers Cindy Blackman-Santana, Chad Smith, and Jason Bittner.
