Every year Muhtadi Thomas celebrates his birthday with the world. For the past 14 years he has held an international drum festival showcasing drum performances from different cultures.
I was lucky to participate and experience the joy of drumming years ago with Afropan Steelband when the festival was originally situated at Queen's Park. This was my first time attending at Woobine Park in The Beaches since their move to 2012.
As usual, it was a great 2 day event with 2 stages of performances, and a drum circle anyone could join. A variety of food is always accessible and multiple vendors selling their wares.
