Rhythm Fix wants to create a more rhythmically aware culture because drumming together strengthens our community. We may meet for the first time but as we play together, we give ourselves a rhythmical massage, an emotional release and a healing. As membraneous amplifyers the drums acoustic vibration effects us all.
We can provide you with skilled drumming and dance workshops, unifying drum circles, passionate facilitators, energising world music performances, street acts and Djs, interactive school incursions, ongoing drum and dance classes and we can also skin, tune and repair your broken drums.
But why drum?
Firstly, its just really good fun!
You are walking down the street past some busking bongo player and your hand spontaneously feels drawn to hit the skin, you can’t walk past without having a bash on the drum.
Most of us have this probably deep ancestral memory of the drums significance and importance to us and our community. Although historically repressed in us westerners (precisely because of its power to liberate and bond community) this need for rhythmic expression is now resurfacing in old and new forms all over the globe.
The richness and wealth of a Country is in the culture, the music and art of the people.
Apart from the obvious cardio workout, drumming provides health benefits which are now starting to be officially recognised with recent studies with beginners proving drumming together increases the T-cell count in the blood stream which helps in the fight against cancer and disease. Drummers have been found to easily enter alpha brainwave states
