Hands, sticks and mallets pound out old and new rhythms on weathered skins: global beats for dancing bodies and curious ears! The ensemble was founded by percussionists David Chan, Larry Graves and Steve Mancuso in 2008, combining the circuitous rhythms of West Africa, Cuba, India and Brazil with the jazz-imbued horn work of Marcus Ali and Rebecca Hennessy.
Fusing the energy of New Orleans parade bands and the uplifting spirit of American Roots Music, DRUMHAND has released their fourth album of original and worldly sounds. The Toronto group is becoming increasingly known for their innovative, dynamic performances and artistic accessibility for audiences of all ages and strives to introduce listeners to their inventive orchestrations and previously unexplored blends of sound and texture.
