"...it was the best conference I have ever attended. I really liked the space, the teachers, how accessible the teachers were to talk to, the energy of the people that came, and the layout of the program... My spirit is rejuvenated!"   

"There's like this buzz, if you tune in, you can almost hear it. Everyone is in harmony. Everyone is there with their energy totally focused on the music. It's an amazing experience!"

"I came to this retreat with only a few weeks of drumming experience and shy to play in front of anyone but left three days later completely comfortable playing djembe."

"Pure joy, judgement free zone, warm hearts, lifted spirits and multi-generational celebrations!"
