Fusing the energy of New Orleans parade bands with the circuitous rhythms of West Africa, Cuba, India and Brazil, Toronto’s DRUMHAND is becoming increasingly known for their innovative, dynamic performances and artistic accessibility for audiences of all ages. With layered drumming and poly-meter at the core, many of DRUMHAND’s engaging and edgy compositions feature the one-stringed ‘stomach harp’ of Brazil or the box-shaped Gome foot-drum of West Africa alongside flutes and horns from around the globe. The group’s ‘folkloric’-style vocals appear in a variety of languages and sometimes offer audiences a part in the show.
