In the Bamana language of west Africa,

 the word for what westerners call 'djembe' is: 

'jebe bara'  /je bay - bar - ah/ . 

'Jebe' means 'unity'; 'bara' means 'drum'. 

“Unity of the drum” or “unity drum”.

When we  play the drum, we open our hearts, and come together, all one, hang up disagreements like an old coat to be left behind.  

When one bird flies, you don't hear it, but a whole flock ~ you hear and feel it.

Alone, nothing. Together, everything.

Unity of the drum.

Ultimate thanks and boundless gratitude to 

Abdoulaye Diakite 

for his teachings, patience, kindness and guidance 

on the path of 

Rhythms, heart and soul. 

Rise. In. Power.
