"Rhythms of Life" Documentary Film Project  

For over a decade, Craig Norton of Hands on Drumming has had the idea to combine his passions for filmmaking and drumming and he has brought this inspiring project to life! Think about it.... there were no feature length documentaries about the spirit and many benefits of community drumming. BOOM SHAKA LAKA! Let's do it!!! 
For three years he reached out to the drumming community, did interviews and shot some of the most unique applications and prominent leaders in action. He traveled throughout the US and in January 2018 Craig spent three weeks in Senegal, West Africa documenting the heart of rhythm culture.
