Drumming is a story that goes back to the time of the apes. At one point when the first monkey was drumming on his chest he did it to communicate something. There is a theory that humans started to communicate with speech the same time people started to play the drums. The first drum rhythm was a assimilation of speech patterns. Drumming was used with different cultures to communicate with far away entities. Today we communicate with a fellow drummer who tells us how his life story of drums has changed him to become the percussionist he is today.
