Engage in a world of rhythm. Enjoy a creative environment where percussionists, dancers, and music lovers of all traditions, gather to explore, create and innovate. The festival will be hosted by Asheville's ambassador to rhythm, River Guerguerian.
This year's theme, Celebrating Women in Rhythm, will honor powerful female artists whom we will bring to Asheville from around the globe. Residency Artists will collaborate and create original compositions during the week. They will also teach a week-long intensive program, give workshops/demonstrations on Saturday for the public, perform a Masters Concert on Friday evening, an informal evening of Solo Performances and Jams on Saturday evening, and facilitate a sound meditation on Sunday.

On a deeper level it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect and respect for others. It is not really about drumming, but uses the drum as a tool for communication and personal expression.
