Barbara and Eric vanBok are true enthusiasts for the drumming culture of West Africa, specifically from Guinea. After years of study with the Boston based The DrumConnection, and ongoing workshops with the Taketina Method, they moved to Midcoast Maine. In February of 2006, Barbara and Eric started   co-teaching West African ensemble drumming to the Midcoast Maine area, first as The DrumConnection Maine and then as Resounding Rhythms: Drums of West Africa.
