Enjoy a demonstration of several different drums and percussion instruments from many cultures on five continents including: Africa, North and South America, Asia, India and the Middle East.

Robin has toured in these countries performing, teaching and doing workshops for over 45 years. His Middle Eastern percussion video "Voices of the Doumbek" is available in libraries in most major cities all over the world. He has great stories and anecdotes from his travels that are both entertaining and educational.

The program ends with an audience participation segment where Robin invites everyone to play together on percussion instruments and experience the drums first hand. Don't miss it!

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
