Community Drum Circles
LIFE Center Stage presents the Worldbeat Rhythmic Drumming Workshop on Saturday, December 10 from 3pm to 5pm at CARES 25 W. Main St. Rockaway, NJ as part of our Bridging Realities initiative. Our goal is to bring individuals and communities together in fun-filled, uplifting and inspiring ways, educating all through personal experience and creative expression.
Expand deeper into your understanding and experience of the power of transformational healing through drum rhythms and song. Explore the rhythms and resonance of music rooted in one's authentic self-expression.
Facilitated by Ubaka Hill; Performer, Master Teacher and Inspirational Speaker based in New York. Ubaka’s primary focus as a teacher of hand drumming is to encourage, motivate, empower and stimulate joyfulness. Ubaka creates environments to reconnect with ancient wisdom and drumming traditions using sound as a tool for personal transformation, healing and celebration; to re-activate our relationship to rhythm and pulse, to learn how to participate in community drum circles and group music making; recognize ourselves as active participants on the continuum of folkloric drumming and musical traditions; to foster positive public recognition, awareness and appreciation of the evolving women’s drumming culture.
Ubaka is a creatively authentic, energetic performer, composer, songwriter, recording artist, public speaker, and teacher of hand drumming for more than 30 years throughout the United States and other countries. Ubaka creatively weaves percussion, poetry and song to inspire a positive uplifting atmosphere for her diverse audiences everywhere she teaches and performs.
Ubaka says "my soul-vision is to facilitate and inspire personal transformation, empowerment, healing and joy with music that moves you".
