Hi, I would like to bring (maybe buy there) but start shopping now for a
drum to bring to Fest. My fantasy would be that it is made by a woman.
I wish to have it for drum circles, meditation, healing, etc so would like it
to have that energy. I would also like to put my hands on it before I buy it, or
have it made for me...AND maybe the tricky part would be that I prefer
the price to stay under $100.
I am also open to a gift of one that has been used this way,
still prefer built by a womon for womon. (or used one for sale)
I was going to say "loan" but I prefer to not worry about it so
it needs to be mine.
That is my fantasy. I am open to recommendations about drum types.
(it definitely needs to be campfire side portable) I am an amateur...have
not been taught anything about drums. (yes, choir/drums/choir/drums..which
intensive? ) So can't really tell you which I am drawn to. (do I really have
to pick ONE?)
I have been told that drums need to be made to be able to be tuned.
(I bought one at a flea market and it is not. You know, the sort when
you hit it everyone looks at you? No? ) It is nice to know if it is something
traditionally used for the purposes I mention above...as well as if it is usually
a womyn's drum or not.
That in mind......My attitude toward music, sound, and art is that it comes from
the soul, so only being allowed to strike an instrument a particular way, only certain
genders being allowed to play it...all that.....um...no. (unless it is the rules for
a class or a particular circle of course) So if it comes from another woman
who feels the same way, that is a plus.
Soooooooooooooooooo recommendations anyone?
Meanwhile while I was searching for drums made for and by womyn, I came across
these videos that I thought fit well here. Maybe even some have played here already.
I think you will enjoy them.
first for those who think they might be getting old.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYZkFOZoP-ohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wq1a2xk- ... re=related
