Interactive Jungle Drum Circle with Chazz Ross
Join us for a Jungle Drum Circle where we’ll create jungle sounds and sing silly songs together using African Djembe Drums! Performer Chazz Ross’s performance teaching reflects forty years of achievements in African music and dance, Latin percussion, martial arts, stand-up comedy and acting. Kids (and grown-ups) will have the chance to play djembe drums as part of the drum circle that Chazz will instruct and lead!
Each performance is approximately 30-45 minutes long. All performances are *free* with admission but capacity is limited, so come early! No advance reservations are required.
