Frame drum is a percussion instrument that has been played since ancient times.
Six years ago, I decided to learn the frame drum to be able to accompany myself while singing.
I also read the amazing When the drummers were women by Layne Redmond. I discovered her research about this instrument, that was quite fascinating. Her legacy still leaves today, and she is the first woman to be on the Percussion wall of fame.
Quickly, new songs started to birth. In 2020, I took Marla Leigh Goldstein's Frame drum academy online, to enhance my skills.
The practice of this instrument not only helps me create new songs, but it helps me to stay aligned, focused, relaxed. Rhythms have their own medicine, they resonate within our body, permeating at a cellular level. It is a wonderful way to release, to ground, to create, to meet our inner rhythm....WE ARE RHYTHM!
