Drum Atweme

One of the most elevating experiences for the kids in the Arrernte camps is the drumming sessions run by drum impresario, Peter Lowson, and funded by Tangentjere Council as one of the programs to lift esteem in the camps. The kids have opened national conferences and busk regularly in the Mall, in addition to their Friday morning workshops. They have self-funded trips to participate in the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Gaston Hayes lies across the front of the group grinning faintly in his sleep.
