Tierpoort Seniors discovered that exposure to drumming causes sudden outbursts of joy, happiness, energy, creativity, awareness and probably even spontaneous healing.

On the morning of 3 April there were 50 attendants at Klitsgras Drumming on plot 62, Leribisi Road, Tierpoort. The hosts at the drumming boma were Andries Bruyns and his mother Lienka.

Andries and his team, Craig Willis and Kojo Dodoo of Ghana, lead the circle with various techniques and rhythms. Everybody participated in full spirit, creating a wonderful sound. The team also gave a performance of their own talents with drums, didgeridoos, handpans and other percussion instruments.

The tables were decorated with an ‘Out of Africa’ theme and the food, prepared and mostly donated by the committee, suited the occasion. Guests were welcomed with coffee and rusks before the drumming started. This was followed by a meat and vegetable stew served on samp and beans with beetroot as a side dish. A layered banana and custard desert was served.
