At the heart of Ancient Youth is a group of teen-agers who study and perform traditional music from Haiti, Cuba and Brazil under the direction of Rick Bausman, founder of The Drum Workshop, Inc. The Drum Workshop provides classes in ensemble drumming to groups of people of all ages and levels of ability, and these young students have achieved a high level of proficiency in a difficult genre through dedication and hard work.
This recording is dedicated to Forrest Tomlinson. He was a friend and advisor to many of us for many years before his death in 1997. Forrest, we miss you, and we hope you like the record.
