Percussionist Shane Shanahan creates an awful lot of music from a single ancient drum.

With a background in jazz and rock and a career that has found him playing with Bobby McFerrin, James Taylor, Aretha Franklin, Philip Glass, Chaka Khan and Deep Purple to name a few, conducting workshops and clinics, working on Broadway and performing with dance, theater and yoga groups, Shanahan has had a diverse and busy life.

On this fascinating display from April 23, 2020, Shane Shanahan creates a great deal of music from a single drum (sounding like several percussionists at once) , sounds like a tabla player on an Indian-inspired piece, and accompanies a singer on an early Jewish folk song.

The World Music is quite intriguing and haunting.
