Artist Spotlight: Diaspora Drumming

Diaspora Drumming is a percussion group led by Ringo Brill, focused upon the music of the African Diaspora. Through studying and performing, members of this ensemble seek to discover and share the underlying artistic and historical connections between the rhythms of Africa and Latin America. Ringo Brill?s search for musical experience and knowledge has taken him to Mexico, Cuba, Brazil and West Africa. He is recognized for his work in The Twelve-Eight Path Band, Diaspora Drum & Dance, One World Tribe and many other projects, and gives regular classes and workshops in the Buffalo-Niagara region.
