Building on the wonderfulFirst International Biblical Drum Festival last year, we are pleased to share with you that the Second International Biblical Drum Festival will be held in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, April 15 to 17, 2016. Beginners are most welcome as well as intermediate and advanced drummers who knew and learned with Layne Redmond.
Her very gifted drummer, Miranda Rondeau, from California is our special guest. An internationally known drum singer, Miranda is a deeply spiritual frame drum artist, and gifted workshop facilitator. She chants with her own unique expression, knitting the human being with nature's elements, for devotion, relaxation, meditation and prayer.
Earth Day occurs just after our Festival. And so the theme chose for our Festival isthe 4 elements: earth, air, fire, and water, an ancient Nubian practice of associating each stroke of the drum with an element. Layne learned of this association from Hamza el-Din who grew up in Nubia.
So, come, dream and drum, learn and celebrate !
The Ottawa Biblical Drummers will be your welcoming hosts!
Details will be published on this site as they become available.
