There is an old African saying that goes something like this, “There are three types of people in the world.
- When they hear the sound of a African drum they can’t help but move there body. The spirit of the listener, the drummer and the drum find harmony and join together in celebration.
- The Second type of person finds the sound of a African drum to be soothing, the sound takes them to a state of relaxation. This person spirit joins with the spirit of the drum and both find comfort in the union.
- The Third type of person closes there ears when they hear the sound of a African Drum. The rhythm disturbs them. Makes them feel uncomfortable and nervous. If they are in a room where they drum or drums are being played they have to leave the room. They are not in harmony with their own spirit and so there is no communication or harmony between the spirit of the drum or drummer.
