Aao Bajaao is an open drum circle organised by Drumberries, which is now held every month in Hyderabad...a great way to connect, interact and have fun!

Each participant is provided with drums and percussion, and then initiated by the facilitator they get into the groove and play together. The emphasis is on- “CREATE IN THE MOMENT”- improvisations, rhythms we feel and explore all together in the group. These are not pre-learnt or formal ones…it’s simply flowing right there. The first session of Aao Bajaao was held in May 2011.

The beat of the drums can make you smile, relieve stress and take you on a spiritual journey. Through Drumberries, VeHaan and Meghna are helping people do just that. Sangeetha Devi Dundoo gets the details. In rhythm is life, believe VeHaan and Meghna. VeHaan and Meghna's abode in Sainikpuri resonates with music in every nook and corner. Drums of all sizes and shapes add a unique dimension to the house. “We can host a drumming session for 800 people at one go,” smiles Meghna.

VeHaan is a composer known for his tunes for ads, corporate films, short films and documentaries. Meghna is a psychologist who explored theatre and performing arts and found her calling as a sound engineer. Together, the couple founded Drumberries, through which they began conducting drumming sessions for corporate and educational institutions a year ago. VeHaan sums up, “There is rhythm in each one of us — the way we walk, the way we talk and our own heartbeat follows a rhythm. We need to be in tune with that rhythm.”

Drumming makes inroads into the urban landscape as people wake upto its rhythm.

What is fascinating about Drumberries is anyone can join in and in a matter of minutes get engulfed by the rhythm. There are no rules, one has to just follow the beats and have fun. The harmony and synchronization will take one to a higher plane and within minutes a sense of calmness engulfs you.

From executives from the corporate world to school children, everyone is enthralled and drumming their way from stress and anxiety. VeHaan says," there is rhythm in all of us and in everything we do, while talking, walking and in just about everything. At Aao Bajaao the idea is to get people to experience the power of drumming together and live in the moment."

Come Together
Drumberries In Hyderabad

Few activities bring people together, like music and jamming out do. This is the idea behind Drumberries.

Weapon of choice: the jembe (which literally means “come together”). Using an arsenal of these wooden drums, Drumberries deploys drum circles (as big as 750, once).

Founder VeHaan hands out the drums, starts with the beats. The beat starts, and the jembe is right in your lap. Instinctively, you just pick up the beat. As VeHaan says, "Our hearts beat to a rhythm, we breathe one".
