Bang for the Train
In many ancient societies, drumming to invoke the rainfall has a long tradition. Bang for the Train is a participatory musical campaign to raise awareness about the importance of the city train transportation development in Miami and the nation at large. A number of virtuoso percussionists from around the city operate various mallets and beaters to excite public signs, railings and parts of building at and around the performance space. Join the synchronized drumming.
Make noise. Make difference. Have fun.
