It’s International Drum Month, and to celebrate, the MWC team have been exploring the world of drums – and the drums of the World.
There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of types of drum. They differ in sound, playing technique and materials, but also in their cultural and musical significance. Some drums have developed for dancing or performance music, others are vehicles for group experiences, meditative, celebratory and even military use.
