This hour-long ritual performance utilizes a wide array of percussion instruments from North Africa, the Middle East, and East India, as well as Western orchestral instruments. Drake and Zerang also use the Frame Drum that has its origin in ancient Mesopotamia, and a variety of hand drums, including dumbek, tabla, rukk, conga, djimbe, and tambourine, concentrating on long rhythmic cycles and structured improvisations. Drake and Zerang are veterans of Chicago world music, new music, and jazz scenes, and have performed together nationally and internationally.
