As Rusted Root's Jim Donovan leads today's Day of Drumming, he wants participants to connect with their inner selves. While they're pounding away on hand drums, "They'll experience relaxation in a meditative way," says Harry Pepper, a coordinator at Common Ground, the holistic healing center that hosts the event . "It's similar to a dream state that's helpful for your health." At 7:30 p.m., Donovan and Pepper join African drummers Sogbety Diomande and Elie Kohonia in a concert of traditional and Rastafarian-style drumming at Dionysus (135 West Lorain Street in Oberlin). "You'll be surprised at how engaging it is," says Pepper. "You can't imagine that drumming would be so interesting."
Sat., Sept. 30, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
