To foster a love for music in St. Paul youth by teaching them to perform African and Brazilian rhythms on percussion instruments, preparing for performances at the Saint Paul Saints' new ballpark.

To foster a love of music in St. Paul youth, leading Twin Cities drummers, dancers and singers will work with diverse youth using the model of three renowned drum ensembles from Brazil, Japan and the United Kingdom. Youth will learn drum styles from around the world, using everything from traditional percussion instruments to garbage cans and brake drums. Their co-created performances will include singing, chanting and original choreography and will take place at the new St. Paul Saints ballpark.
