Batalá Durham is looking for drummers! We’re starting our second year and have a solid number of members already, but we are always open for new recruits. Whether you are a professional drummer or have no musical experience, you’re welcome to check us out. Our current members range from professional musicians to part time hobbyists to complete beginners. We’re an open organization for anyone regardless of age (over 18 that is unless accompanied by an adult), sex, religion, race, and musical experience.
There is currently no cost to come to a rehearsal. We play the drums listed on our Drums page and we have drums to rehearse with so you can try out different drums to see which you like. Once you decide on what you want to play, some personal items may need to be purchased for your instrument (knee pads for example) and we ask for a small monthly donation to help cover costs.
Our rehearsals are Mondays from 6:30-8:30 pm at Durham Central Park (501 Foster St, Durham, NC 27701 MAP). If you’d like to stop by and check us out, drop us a note on our Contact page so we know you’re coming.
