Project Misik Boston focuses on the healing and therapeutic qualities of music-making, particularly in communally-based African diasporic rhythmic music cultures.   Through workshops, lessons, performances and jam sessions, we learn together using techniques of hand drumming in a journey through rhythms found in music cultures of Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States. Beginning and intermediate drummers of all ages are welcome. Focus on hand and stick techniques of many Diasporic music cultures, including Ghanaian, Haitian, and Brazilian traditional rhythms.
