Songue Drum draws inspiration from nature and permaculture principles to create unique instruments that absolutely anyone can play. Creators John & Eleanor, hailing from the Sunshine Coast hinterland, bring their handcrafted recycled steel drums to facilitate dreamy spaces of engaging, healing and calming sonic alchemy. The drum itself incorporates tuned tongue technology; with an 8 note scale which produce an earthy, melodic and percussive tonal experience. The Songue Drum project aims to facilitate a collaborative musical experience within communities through the use of accessible instruments which connect people of all ages, stages and abilities.
