Hi "One-Heart Community Drum " Folks!,
    Great drum circle last weekend, with 5 people from over an hour distant, that came to drum with us! Awesome!
Also, nice gathering at Joe Lorincz's apartment complex earlier today, for a '12th Night' celebration. Thanks to all that joined us! Regular circle tomorrow. See you there! Love, Steve

Upcoming drumming:

    Saturday, Jan 8th, 5P.M. Set-up, 6P.M. Start. Open community drum circle, LACS, 111 Chestnut St. Ithaca. Extra drums available, children welcomed, potluck optional.

From: Joseph Lorincz <oneheartcommunitydrummers@yahoo.com>
      Saturday, January 22nd, Noon til 4:30P.M. drumming workshop with Jeremy Crytzer: We will spend the afternoon with Jeremy learning rhythms from Guinea and Mali, West Africa; in addition to djembe parts we will also have a chance to learn doundounba parts as well so if you have a doundounba bring it.   The circle will have some drums to share, but if you have a drum bring it.   We will have a break in the middle of the program so bring a snack and some to share.   We will be taking donations to help pay for Jeremy's time.  Hope you can make it!  
    Jeremy Crytzer:  Learn rhythms from Guinea and Mali , West Africa , on djembe and doun douns with Jeremy Crytzer. Jeremy has studied West African drumming for over 21 years with many master teachers including Karamba Dioubate, Abdoul Doumbia, Yaya Diallo, Mamady Keita, Mbemba Bangoura, and others. He has performed all over the country and facilitated workshops with many of the African masters with whom he studied and played. He has been teaching drum classes since 1999, previously in Tucson, Arizona, and is considered a patient and encouraging but rigorous teacher.
   Steve's Note: We are asking people to bring a potluck dish to pass, to provide for refreshments during the workshop. This is optional. Hope to see you all there!

    In February, we expect to be drumming at the Corning Glass Museum "Fire and Ice" Celebration, as we have for the past 6-7 years, with over 1000 people present, lots of good food and drink, and a live band. This is usually the 2-3rd weekend in February. I'll post info as soon as I have more. Love, Steve
