From ancient times through modern day, it’s one woman’s journey on the drum.
Learn how to play in a drum circle with Liz Broscoe at the Lake Tahoe Community College.
Liz Broscoe’s diverse rhythmic adventures began at the age of 10. Since 2000, Liz has taught West African Djembe and Dununs, Afro-Cuban conga and drum set classes at Lake Tahoe Community College. She teaches progressive six week drumming classes and women’s drumming empowerment workshops in the Reno/Tahoe/Carson Valley areas. Liz and her drum and dance troupe, Java Djembe, have reached thousands in the Reno/Carson/Tahoe area with the message of the drum, bringing cultural awareness and education through grants funded by Tahoe Arts Project, Nevada Arts Council, Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation and El Dorado Community Foundation.
Liz is the author of two books:
“Djembe 101″, an instructional book, DVD and play-along CD for the West African Djembe drum.
“Adventures of Durga, Goddess of the Drum”, is a children’s book of hopeful human spirit. Culturally diverse, educational and informative, this modern myth presents the history of the drum from around the globe as Durga seeks out children from many cultures who can help forge a new world rhythm.
