November 2014 - What's Happening @ LWLC : Drum Month

International Drum Month


International Drum Month has been celebrated since 1996 according to Drums (and other percussion instruments) are said to be among the oldest instruments in human history. In 2014, decided to switch International Drum Month to May 2014, so this page is either late or early.
