Born to drum

It’s a well known fact by many, and still an uncharted territory for some, that all people should be equal, no matter the color of their skin, religion and most of all, their gender. I always wonder why there are just a few women that play drums professionally. It’s more accepted for a women to be a pianist, a dancer, violinist but neither a tuba player, trumpetist nor drummer.
Born to drum focus on this interesting aspect, that was forbidden for girls to learn how to drum in Africa.
The goal is: “… the empowerment of women, who for centuries were forbidden access to the drum based on their gender.”
It’s true, women still don’t have the same rights than men in the modern world, avoiding to enter a cliché mode, would like to add the importance of recognizing this injustices not just in the music scene, but all around us.
Born to drums organizes drum camps and drum circles in the San Francisco Bay area. They teach three levels of djembe drumming: Beginners, intermidiate and advanced, where the main focus revolves around the feeling and speed of the player. They not only teach west African rhythms, some of the teachers are from the Americas, and they teach latin rhythms such as Rumba and Guaguancó.
