A dazzling new original work by drummer-percussionist
Siemy Di brings together music and theatre to tell a story
that is an inspiring example of cross-cultural unity.
Legendary American drummer Max Roach is well knows as one of the great innovators of the bebop era, a man who rethought the traditional role of his instrument, freeing it from 'straight' time keeping. He would go on to further develop the possibilities of the drum kit, and to do so he looked away from western music and towards India and Africa.
The Journey of The Drum retraces his steps and taps into the unlimited rhythmic genius found in traditions that are centuries old.
