SECTIONS: Music for Sustainable Community Development Music for Working with Trauma Survivors COUNTRIES: Multi-National: Indonesia, Iraq, United States of America PROJECT: RECAPTURING CULTURAL IDENTITY THROUGH DRUMMING AND DRUM MAKING: DRUMS OF HUMANITY DESCRIPTION: Drums of Humanity was formed as a not-for-profit corporation in 2009 to promote healing for trauma survivors through drumming and drum making activities in areas recovering from war and natural disaster. The formation of this NGO came in conjunction with three international projects in Iraq, Indonesia, and with the Lost Boys of Sudan Center, U.S.A. The immediate inspiration to form Drums of Humanity came from two working trips to Kurdistan, Iraq in 2008 and 2009. It was observed that the combination of drumming and instrument making was a powerful resource for those in need of reconnecting with their own culture and of healing from the emotional trauma and physical loss that they had experienced over many years. More than 300 people in Iraq have participated in these workshops and have learned to form new ways of expressing grief and finding peaceful connections with their former adversaries. This approach was continued in Indonesia in 2009 with young people, educators and artists in Bantul, a region that was devastated by the May 27, 2006 earthquake. A U.S. State Department sponsored artistic team presented a wide range of music and instrument making projects and performances to young people, administrators and artists. The visit culminated in a presentation for the public. Drum circles, and particularly instrument making, were used to effect positive change at the Lost Boys of Sudan Center in Phoenix, Arizona during 2009 and 2010. Young refugees from that country had relocated there after decades of civil war. Drums of Humanity has centralized the management of three projects since then: In Iraq, Kurdistan Save the Children teachers are trained and students shown how to make musical instruments for cultural and economic revitalization. At the Children's Rehabilitation Center in Kurdistan, demonstrations on making instrumental designs were provided to local craftsmen. Documented on film by the Institute for War and Peace Reporting in Iraq, the video and instruments are intended for use by therapists in treating clients with severe mental and physical challenges. In Yogyakarta, Java, four American artists (2 dancers, 1 drummer and 1 instrument maker) made presentations to school assemblies for hundreds of students, professional development workshops with over 40 teachers, and hands-on sessions with 130 middle school students. Workshops included the making of drums and other percussion instruments, as well as stringed and wind instruments from around the world. This work connected young people and adults to their own culture through indigenous scales and rhythms. Connections were also made to other cultures: for example, through the West African plucked kalimba, the Native American Lakota drum and the Middle Eastern santur. 73
