African & shamanic drumming
We are a social enterprise based in Sydney, Australia who teach community African & shamanic drumming classes to empower women to express themselves through rhythm.
We provide a safe, inclusive space for community members and allow for the opportunity of social interaction, inclusion, cohesion, networking and wellness.
“Drumming opens portals to the spirit world, draws spirit in, and opens you up to receive it.”
– Michael Drake
“If a (wo)man does not keep pace with (her) his companions, perhaps it is because (s)he hears a different drummer. Let (her) him step to the music which (s)he hears…”

・Since 2007 ・
Welcome & thanks for checking out my website! I’m Sal & I’ve had the pleasure of teaching & performing African drumming (djembe) since 2007. I played the djembe as a hobby for some years and followed an exciting journey from attending classes to performing live, teaching and facilitating classes.
I’ve taught at various community colleges and schools throughout Sydney, run Women’s shamanic circles and am part of a performance troupe which performs at both community & private events.
I enjoy teaching African drumming immensely, it is such a unique modality which transcends age, race, sex, religion and preconceived notions of musicality and ability.
It brings people from all walks of life together regardless of whether they have ever touched a musical instrument before, to create music – in the moment – to be – in the moment and to enjoy those moments in the spirit of sacred, shared community space which is more important right now then we have ever known.
