A rare and unique assembly of some of the greatest drummers in the world. Explosive talent, passion, humour and irresistible personality come together in a magical setting as these diverse drummers and forty students create a profound and unforgettable experience. Featuring Dennis Chambers, Kenwood Dennard, Horacio 'El Negro' Hernandez, Giovanni Hidalgo, Mike Mangini, Raul Rekow and Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr, the film engages us with a diversity of musical styles. These master drummers of rock, jazz, Latin fusion and soul have backed the likes of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Carlos Santana - and now each other. At the end of the film you will be tapping out the rhythms that live within us all, and the positive energy of these masters will pulse through you for days to come.
