Please welcome little drummer boy Ethan Isadore Brightman to the DRUMMM family! Ethan was born on Sunday August 11th, 2013 in Berkeley, CA to DRUMMM founder Jeni Swerdlow and proud papa Peter Brightman. So far he’s shown an interest in listening to legendary drummers Babtunde Olatunji, Glen Velez, Master Musicians of Jajouka, and Mamady Keita to name just a few. Glad you could join us in rhythm and in life little Ethan! We can’t wait to drummm with you.
