Friday 18 June 2010: DON'T BANG THE DRUM
Here we are in a fabulous place
What are you gonna dream here?
We are standing in this fabulous place
What are you gonna play here?
I know you love the high life, you love to leap around
You love to beat your chest and make your sound
but not here man - this is sacred ground
with a Power flowing through
And if I know you you'll bang the drum
like monkeys do
I have been listening to a cd of Joji Hirota and his Taiko drummers today and so was inspired to take a picture of one of my four drums. This one is especially intriguing to me as it is hand held and made of terracotta with what I think is a goat skin (poor goat) top. However, it all seems to be held together with rubber bands. It gives off a lovely sound.
