About The Film
Explosive talent, passion, humor and irresistible personality come together in a magical setting when seven diverse drummers create a profound and unforgettable experience with forty students.
Featuring Dennis Chambers, Kenwood Dennard, Horacio “El-Negro” Hernandez, Giovanni Hidalgo, Mike Mangini, Raul Rekow and Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr the film engages us with music styles and influences that are as dynamic as the performers themselves. We are lifted to another dimension as we connect to the powerful forces of nature embodied in the music of these master musicians. The creative and spiritual freedom of expression they display is astounding – from Latin rhythms to the wildly original compositions of Kenwood Dennard. Masters of rock, jazz, Latin fusion and soul, these drummers have backed the likes of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Carlos Santana – and now each other. The philosophy of these musicians is underscored by love, compassion and joy. At the end of the film you will be tapping out the rhythms that live within us all, and the positive energy of these masters will pulse through you for days to come.
The ﬁlm has been awarded the Hot Docs International Film Festival -Top Ten Audience Favorite Award this year and has received standing ovations and praise at ﬁlm festivals across the country.
