Drums Alive®

Award Winner


Golden Beats stimulates people whether they are young or old, healthy or ill. When we drum and dance, we are having FUN! This, in return, releases endorphins and releases negative feelings. The rhythmical patterns of the drum increase the synchronization of brain wave activity which in turn provides feelings of euphoria and improved mental awareness and self-acceptance. Golden Beats® is specially designed for the senior population.
