The first and only documentary about womxn drummers by filmmaker Cindy Goldberg is now available to stream on Vimeo!
About the film via Goldberg:
“Women play drums, too. It’s not just a ‘guy thing.’ ‘Beat Keepers: Women With Rhythm’ showcases dozens of amateur and professional female percussionists and drummers in the US and Canada – from women who started playing in their grade school stage or marching bands, to those who began playing in church or with original and cover bands later in life. We hear directly from these women about why they enjoy playing as much as they do. And we learn about the challenges they have faced as “female” drummers.
“Included in the film are Dawn Richardson of 4 Non Blondes, Tracy Chapman, Elie Bertrand (Scarlet Sins), Lindsay Martin (Juliet Simms), Jyn Yates, April Samuels (Metal Shop Dallas), Tosha Jones, and Julianna Mascia.
“In addition to dozens of female players, the film also features the perspectives of many renowned male drummers, such as Todd Sucherman (Styx), Walfredo Reyes Jr. (Chicago, Santana, Lindsey Buckingham) and Jason Gianni of the Drummers Collective in New York City.”
