Drumming for Black Lives

Image
We know that Black Lives Matter -- that Black lives are necessary, beautiful, vital, worthy. That Back joy and hope and youth and art matter. Right now there are a LOT of actions in Oakland, so we're activating to do what we do best -- get out there and drum in the streets!

We’ve put together an easy form (it only takes 2 minutes to fill out!) for community members and organizations to REQUEST A CREW of BoomShake community members at your street action.  We can:  play a set or support chanting with rhythm during your rally or car caravan drum and chant during your march. Our first priority is to support Black led actions. We're here to DEFUND the police, to fight for Black Trans + Gender Non Conforming folks' lives, to demand reparations and economic justice, and so much more.


We'll see you out there.

Dear Community,
Right now there are a LOT of actions in Oakland, so we're activating to do what we do best -- get out there and drum in the streets-- some of those will be highlighted on BoomShake's Facebook and Instagram pages.

We also need to make the space and time to keep practicing our culture, to heal ourselves from this work so we can create healing for others. So.....
Wednesday, June 17 - Aunty Monica will start a new session of Tyke Tunes, to create joy and healing for our young ones
Monday, June 29 - We're also restarting Adult Community classes (in person, with masks, outside, physically distant) and we'll be focusing on developing a strong repertoire for drumming in the streets at protests.

More details on classes below.

We know that Black Lives Matter -- that Black lives are necessary, beautiful, vital, worthy. That Back joy and hope and youth and art matter. We'll see you out there.
