Kumi Masunaga - Founder
"Kumi's session was relevant, thoughtful, clear, professional and most of all, IT WAS FUN! She exceeded our expectations!" -- PASIC co-chair
All Drum Jam facilitators are genuinely gifted performers and inspirational motivators. They use their musical prowess to transform the simple rhythm harmonies created by people who have never touched a musical instrument, into an invigorating, harmonic composition.
Internationally acclaimed Japanese percussionist Kumi Masunaga is a REMO artist and founder of Drum Jam, based in Hong Kong. She has traveled from Africa to the Americas to Asia, learning rhythms to ignite her team-building programs. She has shared the stage with leading change-makers and wellness leaders including Jane Goodall, David Beckham, Shiva Rea and Dave Stringer.
For over twenty years, tens of thousands of people have experienced her corporate team building, classrooms, parties and wellness retreats. She is trained in the evidence-based HealthRHYTHMS, and is a certified Music Medicine Facilitator, Rhythm2Recovery Facilitator, and Village Music Circles trainer. In response to the COVID pandemic, she is now offering online drum programs for communities and individuals.

all the joy you brought
to our dinner last night.
Your energy and love

luck in the world.”
“Kumi is a great representation of someone taking
the facilitated drum circle concept into a county and culture and with patience
and perseverance created a recreational drumming movement and drumming community.”
