Museum admission, free for members
  • About This Program

    The foundation of a person’s life is the heart and the healthier the heartbeat, the better one feels. Join Kojo Bey and Drums 4 Life for an uplifting 50-piece drum circle! Participants will learn the history of the percussion instruments along with basic drumming techniques before forming an interactive, multigenerational drum circle.

    Drumming allows us to explore our inner voice and express our unique rhythms in a fully engaged way. You’ll connect on a deeper level with your inner life force and will leave the workshop exhilarated. What better way to usher in the holidays?


    Kojo Bey is co-founder of SOUNDS OF AFRIKA Drum and Dance Troupe and founder of Drums 4 Life and has been performing and teaching African drumming as a healing art for 20 years. He has facilitated drum circles at Fortune 500 companies – including ESPN, Pfizer and Bank of America – and for students at the primary, secondary and university levels. Bey has studied with Master Teachers from around the world; eventually, earning the title “Drum Doctor.” He presently conducts on-going drum circles to support humanitarian efforts both domestically and abroad.
