Muhtadi at the Toronto Drum-a-thon

mat-and-galFor 24 hours non-stop, the walls of  Daniel’s Spectrum in Toronto  reverberated with the sounds of rhythmic drumming from the members of the Muhtadi International Drumming Festival (MIDF ),  the Toronto Brazilian Samba band, TDot Batu and other organizations and individuals.

Drummers of different skill levels and experience  combined their talents to produce what the organizers of the fund-raising  event – Parkinson Canada and MIDF -called a Drum- a-thon which started at five p.m. on Friday and went on until Saturday at 5 p.m. And the enthusiasm of the performers never waned.

The event attracted hundreds of  well-wishers and it was all done for a ” worthy cause” as the   organizers of the event proudly noted.

Proceeds  of the Drum-a-thon will be shared between Parkinson Canada and the MIDF.
