       For centuries drumming was the sole form of communication in parts of Africa. Today, this rich African heritage is used around the world as a captivating source of relaxing, fun-filled entertainment. African Djembe Drumming is a new name for the informal drum circle that has been meeting in the park at Kaohsiung's cultural centre for several months. Now working with Mindful Phoenix Arts, South African Kevin Fell leads interactive drumming exercises. As participants add their beat, they become aware of how their contribution, as an individual, impacts the group as a whole. The enjoyment and adrenaline rush created by African Djembe Kaohsiung helps to release stress, bolster interpersonal and group relationships, facilitate cultural exchange, and keep an ancient art form alive. Djembe Drumming can be one of the most exciting forms of shared energy; it infuses creativity and a vibrant African atmosphere to Taiwan. African Djembe Kaoshiung will be hosting workshops and performances in African story-telling, drumming and dance. Call Mindful Phoenix Arts for more information, or Kevin at 0910812911. Drums provided if you don't have your own. --By Steven Crook Translated by Christine Wang
