Throughout history and across cultures, drums have been the beating heart of human communities. They’ve been used to summon gods, fire up warriors, and unite communities in a common cause. The power of drumming to connect people and inspire action is on full display at this high-octane performance by an array of celebrated activist-artists representing Caribbean, Japanese, African, and Native American musical traditions.
