The History of drum goes back to when you were a baby. You beat on things with other things, you liked the sound. Cultures around the world have used drums from pre-history. You can find examples in all parts of the globe. Africans would lay their hands on trees, or felled logs, to feel the natural vibrations. When they found a tree with a vibration that moved them, they would select that tree to carve for a drum. Then they would play the very same rhythm of the live tree on the new drum, and pass that rhythm down with the drum for generations. This was the origin of many popular beats we still use today. As the wind moves the branches of a tree, lay your hand on the tree and keep very still. On many trees you can feel syncopated vibrations that are suitable for drumming. Notable Distinct Drumming cultures include, West & Central African, Latin, Polynesian, Japanese, Indian, North & South American, Celtic, and Morraccan.
