"A World of Drumming II" shakes things up

“A World of Drumming” is a percussion extravaganza. All kinds of drumming representing all parts of the world will happen Saturday at St. Joseph’s Cultural Center, for which this is also a much needed benefit show.

This, the second time such a percussion event has come to St. Joseph’s (the first was in 2006), celebrates the power of the drum to unify humanity, say its organizers, and recommend getting tickets in advance, due to the popularity of the event.

At least eight groups, from classical Indian to African, will perform, starting at 7 p.m.

Drums first appeared as far back as 6000 BC and have been used down through the ages to entertain, conduct ceremony and ritual and communicate information. Today, drums are made of everything from plastic to basic metal; some even exist in iron, bronze and steel.

Try to stand still at this event, can’t be done.

Buy tickets for $20 in advance at BriarPatch in Grass Valley, After the Gold Rush Records in Nevada City and at the office of St. Joseph’s Cultural Center, 410 S. Church St., Grass Valley; $25 at the door. Proceeds help the center pay its insurance. Contact Joseph Guida at (530) 272-4725 or stjcc@nccn.net; go on-line at http://www.saintjosephsculturalcenter.org.
