📜 History of National Drummer Day
So, by drumming, you are essentially practicing something that is, most likely, older than humanity.
Furthermore, the basic design and construction of the drum has remained unaltered for thousands of years. The disparity between Rush’s gigantic drum equipment and the alligator skin drums discovered in China in 5050 BC may appear large at first glance, but it is actually rather small in the great scheme of things. Drums are drums are drums, and everyone holding a beat becomes a live link to the past.
While technology changes and electronic kits come and go, the value of drumming in the way we express emotions and communicate remains as powerful as it was before we found out how to create one.
