Introduction We are students and teachers, listeners and communicators, consumers and creators, protectors and nurturers, friends and lovers. We drum from the heart, for the heart, to the heart and with our heart. Absorbing the teachings of West African rhythms, songs and dances, Sistahs of the Drum respectfully represent the essence of our traditional African roots in harmony with our African-American cultural rearing. The resulting sound is from somewhere deep within; playing through us and resonating with you. Current members : Mar Stevens, Sandy Mills, Charlene Gumbs, Cynthia Lewis, Shawn Nealy, La Tanya Carmical and Salina Gray. Founding members : Zenju Earthlyn Manuel and Simbwala Schultz. Former members: Micia Mosely, Angela Niles, Rosetta Saunders and Rashida McKinzie. To Contact the group about how our drumming can support your event, please click on "view complete profile."
