Join us for the Rhythm of Life Drum Circle this Friday, January 18 - 7pm at The Center for Conscious Living at 849 East Washington Avenue.
Enjoy drumming as meditation through creative expression, where we connect with the Earth and each other through the rhythms we create. All skill levels are welcome and needed. We have plenty of drums and percussion instrument for you to use. Even if you've never played a drum before, you will likely enjoy this extraordinary experience. Suggested donation $5-10.
Hope to see you Friday!

I just posted this on the message board for

Hello everybody,
yet another evening has passed when I could find nowhere to bang my drum. Nowhere except my own lonesome living room. So I'm asking all of you, begging you, pleading with you to post any drum circles or drum gatherings you know of in the Madison area on my Madtown Drummers Blogspot, athttp://www.madcitydru...
If you don't want to post it yourself, just e-mail me the information at and I will post it myself. Someone's gotta be drummin' in this town on a Friday night!
thank you all,

September 25, 8:30 PM
Janka Nabay & the Bubu Gang visits The Frequency Tuesday, September 25th (8:30pm). The band is on a tour out west after dates with Omar Souleyman and a stellar show at the MOMA in support of their En Yay Sah LP, available now on Luaka Bop. 
Sierra Leonean native Ahmed Janka Nabay single-handedly radicalized bubu, a frantically-paced electronic dance music with ancient, magical origins. As civil war raged in Freetown, his cassettes sold in the hundreds of thousands and kids followed him through the streets. Despite his efforts to make peace, Janka became a target. He was able to escape, and now resides in DC, joined by members of Gang Gang Dance/Highlife, Skeletons, Zs and Saadi. Together they've become the first Bubu band ever in America, releasing their An Letah EP (True Panther), and now En Yay Sah.
