The first International Biblical Drum Festival was an amazing event! Every part of it!

Thanks be to God!

So many wonderful drummers, each one doing their part!

And each one discovering themselves in a rich, creative, energetic, worldwide circle of frame drummers.

Here are some photos sharing our event with you.
