Image - tiny drum In indigenous, land based cultures such as African, Polynesian and Asian etc, rhythm, drumming, music, singing and dancing are cornerstones to the cohesiveness, celebration, and continuity of their communities.

   In such cultures kinesthetic, auditory and visual knowledge passes easily and naturally from older experienced drummers to younger men.

The Rhythm Centre's Rhythm in Schools program serves to help restore what has regrettably been largely lost in technologically oriented western societies.
