In January 2012 in Salvador-BA was the second Viva LaVulva event. It is a feminist meeting realized by local activists. Where women participate from all over Brazil and even from outside of Brazil. Besides concerts and debates, the event featured workshops and had the opportunity to teach rhythms. The workshop was for beginners but more experienced women drummers attended as well.
I was very pleased to have taught them drums because they were really interested and it is very rewarding for me. It’s nice to inspire and encourage people, and I’m sure some of them will go on to play the drums.
