USING GOURD DRUMS IN SCHOOLS
FROM KELLY: When everyone went into buying modes to give students something musical to teach during the pandemic, I thought about how we could act locally, create an instrument with minimial impact on the environment and create employment for Africans. We made more than 300 gourds this past year for various schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. These drums are lightweight (I carry 20 in one box with no problem) and students love having their own instrument, that was hand made just for them.
We work with the wonderful folks down at Welburn Gourd Farm and would love to help your school or organization have a set of drums for your students! We are able to provide 20-150 drums for your school program!
