This event occurs weekly, on Wednesday.
Come out and drum for a session, or the full series (eight weeks), with Joseph Tayoun, internationally acclaimed Middle Eastern percussionist. These weekly sessions include instruction of rhythms, technique, and a drum circle jam in the inspiring setting of the Museum’s Egypt (Sphinx) gallery. Experience the meditative, spiritual, and musical awakenings that can be facilitated through drumming. A limited number of drums are provided; drummers are encouraged to bring their own drums. Dancers are welcome! Admission: $15 walk-in ($100 in advance for all eight sessions); $10 walk-in student/Penn Museum member rate ($70 in advance for eight sessions).
