Any religious drummers (not Christian)?


I saw the other thread about Christian drummers so I thought it would be interesting to see if there were any drummers hanging about who practiced actual religious drumming styles (African, Wiccan, Native American, other native/religious cultures) and not just adapting other styles to use for their witnessing efforts or defining themselves as a religious person who happens to be a drummer playing modern styles.

I am Taino, CEMI Arawak drumming is a bit of cutural blended with thousands of nations beliefs. For example, the Cemi belief is much much older that the Christian. We use hand drums and tamboles.
The Taino drumming culture extends from Tampa Florida all the way to Peru. A simmilar style of this drumming was also played by the Hoppi Indians from Colorado to New Mexico.

Mr. KJELLMUSIC,
I just got a catalog from Crazy Crow Trading Post.
Go to Native American Indian Craft Supplies- Indian Craft Supply- Buckskinner Supply and look up "Drums and Drum Frames".
I think this will expand your horizons.

There you will find:
TAOS Drums
Pow-WOW Drums
Sweat Lodge Drums and
Pueblo Style Drums

As you stated within your thread, Not Christian Drums.
You may also be interested in purchasing the 500 Nations Soundtrack Audio CD by Peter Buffet also know for his orchestrations.
It's quite invigorating.

Some hand drums from India are also quite fascinating.
