Ayub Rhythm + Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen = Successful Older Adult Drumming and Singing
Here’s a fun way to drum with older adults in your music therapy or group drumming sessions. I particularly enjoy introducing something new by way of something old and familiar. (Granted, the Ayub rhythm is much “older” than Carmen, it will probably be “new” to most groups in the US and west.) So, get your doumbeks warmed up and play!

Got any more group drumming mashups? Got any thoughts to share? I’d love to hear your ideas!
