The threat of rain didn’t keep folks away from the Jewish Heritage Festival on the lawn of the State Capitol in Sacramento, California on May 3rd. Spirits soared as attendees happened upon the “One People–One Rhythm” Drum Circle, presented by Jeni Swerdlow and DRUMMM. Participants ranged in age from toddler to grandpa, and came from countries as far away as Israel, Mexico, Phillipines and Russia. It was a true sense of United Nations–united in rhythm! Things really heated up when a group of displaced belly dancers answered the call of the drum and descended upon the circle. One people, one rhythm indeed!
