Dozens Gather for Hit Like a Girl's First Virtual Drum Summit

Thirty of today’s leading female percussionists from the U.S., India, France, Germany, Japan, Brazil, Cuba, Canada, Israel, Egypt, Iran, Spain and West Africa recently came together online to discuss Hit Like A Girl’s new World Percussion project, “Drum Summit”. Hosted by Drum Summit Artist/Advisor Carrie Staller, participants introduced themselves to each other and heard from HLAG and Drum Summit Executive Director, David Levine.

In his comments, Levine talked about the origins of the program and its name “summit”, progress on the website and how the support of the influential percussionists on the call will help accelerate the growth of female drumming around the world. He ended by encouraging the drummers to connect with others and promote their activities; pointing out the mission of the group is to “restore the ancient traditions of female drumming and, through drumming, release the power of women in the
modern age”.
