A group of spirited drummers beating out high energy rhythm on African drums like the djembe and bougarabou might have been seen jamming in a downtown pocket park last week.

Musicians Greg Hillman, Vincent Hunter and Tim Baker with the African ethnic drumming group New Life Creation agree they hope to connect people from different backgrounds through the power of multicultural musical influences. The trio recently played an impromptu session off Broad Street. The group has consistently practiced together over the past three months and welcomes other musicians.
