Our History

Having trained for many years in Drum Circle Facilitation by Arthur Hull (the founder of the Modern Worldwide Drum Circle Movement), and after bringing sessions to more than half a million people since the inception of Drumjam, both Roberto and Vasundhara,along with their team, are of the firm belief that there is a lot more work to be done to bring these inclusive and experiential sessions, as well as its joys and benefits, to many more people.

With this intention at heart, and to enable more people to be part of these experiences, the Community Drumjam Foundation has been conceptionalised.

So far, the monthly Community Drumjam sessions initiated by Drumjam at the Rangoli Metro Art Center, Bangalore since 23rd June 2013 have been drawing people from all walks of life, from varying age groups and with ability levels. These sessions have touched the lives of hundreds of Bangaloreans, regardless of their social, linguistic, religious or economic background. People who have embraced Community Drumjam’s are – individuals, families, friends groups,physically challenged, visually impaired, deaf & mute, transgender individuals & individuals within the autism spectrum and their care-givers to name a few. We are well aware that the benefits of this activity can positively affect people with very specific needs.
