Drum To The Beat

Otha facilitates fun and lively drum circle events from the deep belief that rhythm has the power to build community, promote well-being, and create joy.  He supports participants (from 2 to 1,200) as they come to experience the importance of rhythm in everything and learn that "our heartbeat and breath is the rhythm of our soul and the path of connection to everyone."  Otha leads drum circles for all educational environments, corporate events, religious, spiritual, wellness, and community celebrations. Additionally, as someone passionate for social justice, Otha leads his signature "Drum2Talk" workshop intensives using rhythm and in-depth conversation to support healing and transforming racial conflict.

Fees vary and depend on location, travel that might be needed, and the potential for BlockBooking with other institutions.
