I Just Wanna Bang on de Drum All Day
Profile by Leslie E. Sprague

I think anybody can do it. You just have to have a drum that's your own and spend time with it, you form a relationship with the drum," says twenty-four year old Chris Bertin of Summerside of his passion for Hand Drums and drum-making.
