Drumming has been done for millenniums by cultures from around the world as a way to access spiritual bliss. Some of the earliest drumming was done in Africa, and drumming continues today as part of spiritual celebrations in many societies. Drumming is alive and doing well in Columbus. There are several locations where people can receive drumming instruction, with facilitated groups that support experienced and new drummers.
The Sunday Drumz Circle that meets at Franklin Park during the summer has moved to a new location for the winter. The Upper Cup coffee house at 79 South Parsons Avenue has agreed to host this event every third Sunday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Wahru Cleveland will be a guest facilitator for the group on Sunday, January 20, 2013. The Upper Cup provides food and beverages. You can view the menu for the Upper Cup at www.theuppercup.com.
