A DIFFERENT DRUM
(w/Djembe, Congas, Cajon, Bucket Drums, or Other World Percussion)

Need a high powered, driving beat song to bring the house down as an opener or closer? This is a SUPER piece of music!
The message is . . . even though we are individuals and step to the beat of a different drum, we can still work together to make the world a better place. It promotes unity, harmony, diversity, peace, changing the world. This song makes an impact whether it is sung simply or if a production number is created using all kinds of drums. Afew drum types are suggested, but anthing you have on hand can be uaed, even hand claps or other body percussion.
