THE DRUM! EXPERIENCE
|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS|
Welcome to DRUM! The following are answers to some questions our visitors most often ask. If you cannot find the answer to what you’re looking for, please feel free to send us an email and we'll get back to you shortly.
What is DRUM!?
DRUM! represents the musical heartbeat of Nova Scotia. It is a spectacular musical production featuring 20 musicians, dancers, drummers, and singers from four principle cultures – Aboriginal, Black, Celtic and Acadian – brought together in a heart-pumping fusion of music, dance, poetry, video, rhythm, and song.
What age group is appropriate for the DRUM! show?
One of the great things about DRUM! is its appeal to all ages. Whilst everyone will enjoy the music, dancing, singing and pure spectacle of the show, kids will particularly enjoy the rhythms of the drums, the lights and color. Adults will appreciate the underpinning history and message of cultural diversity in harmony - all wrapped up in a terrifically entertaining upbeat performance - which has as much relevance today as ever before.
When is DRUM! coming to a town near me?

Where can I buy the DRUM! music?
A CD soundtrack of the CBC Television Show which premiered on August 5, 2005 is available for purchase through our website. Please note, this was recorded live at Electropolis Studio in Halifax, Nova Scotia and contains a slightly different song list and cast than that of the current show.
Why is the music on the CD different from that in the show?
The DRUM! music CD is not a soundtrack of the current show but a CBC Television Show, recorded live at Electropolis Studio in Halifax, Nova Scotia, which premiered on August 5, 2005 and contains a slightly different song list and cast than that of the current show.
The current DRUM! show will be recorded this year for release in 2008.
What other DRUM! merchandise is available?
The DRUM! team is working hard to bring you additional exciting merchandise for purchase at shows and online. Please check back regularly for updates.
