The stone people drummers

We are a group of musicians performers and spirits who understand and recognize the value, spiritually, physically, emotionally, musically and community that drumming holds.

 

Combining styles from Africa, the Middle East, Native America and more, we bring the spirit of the drum to life on stage. We have partnered with the Rocky Mountain Belly Dance Co. for many of our performances and the addition of dance to drumming is a pairing our species has enjoyed since we first danced and drummed around the fire pit.

 

Having drummers of varying skill levels from beginner to professional, we bring together a magical event. We are also always looking to add new drummers of all skills to our group. If your interested in becoming a drummer, drop us a line and share the journey with us.

 

Our performance group has been part of many outstanding benefit events in the past years, including Concert for BioDiversity, Rist Canyon Festival, Autism Society Benefits, Grass Roots Festival, Waltz for Wolves, and more. Maybe we can be a part of your event too.


stone people lore

Stone people are the oldest children of Mother Earth. They are the rocks, stones and crystals created by time and have much wisdom to empart upon us if we are willing to listen. They are powerful medicine and are wise teachers. Stone people carry all the history since time began.

 

In Native sweat lodge ceremony, stone people are gathered for sacred ceremony. In the sweat lodge, the Grandfathers, or stone people are heated in a sacred fire to glowing orbs, and as water is poured on them, they realease their wisdom to those who are taking part in the lodge ceremony. Great care is taken in the selection of these Grandfathers for the lodge. Some of them are more willing to be a part of the ceremony and some may not be ready to share their knowledge at that time. Respectful, honorable and humble is the process of choosing the stone people, or being chosen by the stone people.

 

Stone people come in all shapes sizes, colors, energy and power. Listen to them as your paths cross in this life journey. Touch them and feel the power and energy that they share with you. All stone people are different, as are we all, yet we are all related, Mitakuye Oyasin. One stone may speak to me but not have as much to say to you. You will most certainly find stone people that speak to you loudly and with purpose, yet speak only in a whisper to me. Embrace them and respect them. Listen to them with your spirit.

 

The Stone People Drummers honor, respect and admire that which they take their name from. We hope that we may speak to you as the grandfathers of Mother Earth have spoken to us.

 

Mitakuye Oyasin - we are all related.
