Meet Your Facilitators

Drum Circle: Tim and Rachel Summers

Tim Summers discovered West African drumming while walking down the sidewalk one day at Penn

State. A small group of drummers were seated on the wall, playing their hearts out. They invited him to

sit down, borrow a djembe drum, and learn how to play. He was hooked instantly, and within a few

months was drumming five days a week both informally and for dance classes in town and on campus.

He has now been playing for over twenty years. During that time, he has been a member of several

drum and dance performance groups, including the Nommo Performing Arts Company at Penn State

and the Altoona-based Drums of West Africa. He has attended numerous drumming workshops taught

by master drummers such as Mamady Keïta, Famadou Konaté, and Bolokada Conde. He has performed

at weddings and other events, taught West African drum classes, and facilitated drum circles. Tim has a

passion for drumming and its ability to lift a person's spirits and create bonds with others. He lives in

State College PA with his lovely wife Rachel, their two beautiful children, and numerous pets.

Kirtan: Vrindavana-Priya

In 1989 as the Berlin wall crumbled, Czechoslovakia went through its  "velvet revolution" breaking through the tyranny of communism and  fighting to establish freedom. During this world transition, Vrindavan  Priya, at 15 years old, was searching for her own freedom and purpose in  life. In the midst of revolutionary and chaotic days she met devotees  of Krishna, which changed her life forever. Music is intrinsically part  of the bhakti path, and she uses her talents to share the beauty of  vedic culture and spirituality.
