Creative Womyn Down Under 



Zangdrum is all about fun, flow and connection.  We share drum rhythms and listen to each other to create an enjoyable, empowering drum circle flow. Participants do not need to have any experience with drumming. 

“The word rhythm in Greek means to flow. Drumming is a path of healing that guides us into experiencing the flow of our mind and emotions…Drumming gives us an experience where we can be free to connect with ourselves and others, in order to release, restore and heal. It is a universal language where all people can be a part, free from words and concepts so we can experience life with an open heart.”  Project Resiliency

Zangdrum is a music and performing arts initiative connecting people with opportunities for fun and friendship through community hand drumming using djembes, sound shape frame drums and other percussion instruments.

Established in 2002, Zangdrum has specialised in working with and developing drum circle programs for community organisations such as Vincentian House (Refuge), Lou's Place (Refuge), Older Women's Network, Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, The Women's Library and Sydney Spiritfest. Zangdrum has contributed to visibility and awareness raising for events including International Day for People with Disability, Reclaim the Night,  International Women's Day, Mental Health Week and the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.

We are now available in the South Coast NSW / Illawarra and surrounding areas to run one-off or regular drumming workshops, community drum circles, special occasion performances and 1:1 sessions.

We prioritize drumming sessions with womyn and children in disadvantaged life situations.  
We offer fee reductions for community organisations and unwaged individuals.

We use sound shapes (above), djembes (below) and a range of other percussion instruments.

We offer workshops and group experiences across a mix of creative areas for all ages e.g drumming and poetry "Beats and Rhymes Workshop"; drumming and relaxation journeys; drumming and visual arts; and drumming and collective story-building.
