Saturdays -10:30am @ Spontaneous Celebrations in Jamaica Plains (begins June 21st)
Musical work such as poetry, singing and playing instruments is known to promote social competence as it develops in the early years. Drumming, in particular, is rapidly becoming recognized and utilized as a medium for personal growth and development, for the enhancement of community feeling and for physiological and psychological healing. The Urban Griots workshop introduces children to the power of voice and rhythm through drum poetry, music and dance. If you are at least 18 years old, are a parent of child in preschool or kindergarten (4-7 years) and would like more information about participating, please email
