AFRICA SINGS! DRUMMERS FROM RWANDA

Give me a damn good drumming session, and you will have given me joy that will last me all week.

Like these Rwandan drummers who really know how to throw down.

Here are some fantastic traditional Rwandan drummers who were recorded at a village in Rwanda, close to the border with Congo.

Oh, and we must not forget the ladies of Ingoma Nshya, Rwanda’s first-ever women’s drumming group which actively involves women’s participation in the cultural development of Rwanda. Ingoma Nshya has the twin goals of healing and women’s empowerment by using positive methods to reconcile with the violent past of their country and personal tragedies, thereby making history and changing the face of Rwandan drumming by bringing a positive presence to the space once exclusively reserved for men and by creating the first national festival of Rwanda, the Rwanda Drum Festival.

They really know how to put their foot into a good beat as well.

Enjoy!
