With The Drum Dancer, we discover a universal language through music, an intermediary from which bonds are beautifully woven and transcended through time. A rhythm which scans the existence of man and proclaims life. Throughout time and most certainly due to its simple fabrication and workmanship, the drum has been an integral part of the Inuit life who in turn, have transmitted the language of this instrument from generation to generation.
