Recognized as one of the Top Ten Films of 2010 at the prestigious Hot Docs festival, A Drummer’s Dream is a rare and unique gathering of some of the greatest drummers in the world. They have come together at a small farm in Ontario to create a profound and unforgettable experience for forty eager kids. Featuring Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr, Dennis Chambers and Kenwood Dennard, Mike Mangini, Raul Rekow and Giovanni Hidalgo these master drummers have backed up the likes of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Carlos Santana and, now, each other. The film engages us with the rich music styles and influences that are as dynamic as the performers themselves. At the end of the film you will be tapping the rhythms that live within us all and the positive energy these masters display will continue to pulse through you for days to come.
