World Festival of Sacred Music Drum Ensemble

It was a Vision of Joy to see all the drummers come together with six other performing multi-cultural groups for the World Festival of Sacred Music's opening ceremony: Honoring the Sea: Peace on the Beach, at the Santa Monica Beach, California. 
For months, Christine Stevens has been planning for us to be included in the Sacred Rhythm Drum Ensemble with processional beats, and chants. It feels really good to come together in joy, peace, music, song and dance.  A drummer next to me, carried his toddler on his back; a woman in another ensemble was carried to the sand with a wheelchair.  We gave much pleasure to all the beach goers, as well as to each other.
