The Djembe is My Religion
The djembe draws one to evolve spiritually just as any Religion does. Isn’t it great that the drum we all love and enjoy to play keeps us on the spiritual path by its very nature?
After looking for a teacher for several months I came upon Abdouli's class.
I thought I was just showing up for a drum lesson and now I'm on a journey. As a beginner I feel inspired,yet I realize Dejembe playing is a lifelong quest.I also believe Djembe shares many things with religion and other spiritual practices.We are all connected as humans,sharing many different paths, ultimately going to the same place. Djembe is unity.
