With God's help and permission, we'll bellow and bang in ancestral fashion as we gather for February's Primal Music Monday next week at Zawiya Perspective.
1800 East Garry Ave. Suite 101
Santa Ana, CA 92705
The drums went over real big last time, and you can expect that there will again be plenty of pounding. I'll do a quick demo and then it's off to the races. If you're feeling it, shouts, calls, grunts, and all manner of primal vocalizing is more than encouraged!
We'll groove until we're spent or when things start to look like Sunday Service in rural Kentucky, and then we'll break for a happy toast: a glass or two of a cold linden flower-mint infusion. It makes men happy.
Those inclined to keep the rhythm going may do so as we transition to song, some Arabic stuff for sure, but moving quickly into an exploration of American folk and protest songs. We've got Guthrie, Seeger, and Dylan on the menu.
Dangerous stuff, for sure.
Again, a quick reminder of the rules:
1) This gathering is for men only.
2) Show up groomed and smelling good.
3) Absolutely no tuned instruments allowed. Bringing your own drum is encouraged.
4) Sound recording devices are fine, but no photography or video, please.
There are no other rules.
And we've actually got some door prizes for our guests! Show up and get your Primal Music Calendar! I might even have some stickers, and if you get one, do resist the urge to tag your local minbar. Please.
Looking forward to an evening with you, insha Allah.
