A Drummer’s Dream (2010) Trailer
The trailer for A Drummer's Dream which will make its World Premiere at the 2010 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.
Seven of the world’s master drummers blow the roof off the barn and the ducks out of the water when they gather on a remote farm in Ontario cottage country to inspire young musicians to connect with the powerful rhythms of nature. Featuring Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr, Dennis Chambers, Kenwood Dennard, Horacio “El-Negro” Hernadez, Giovanni Hidalgo, Mike Mangini and Raul Rekow, the film dishes up a rich stew of mind-blowing performances in rock, jazz, Latin, fusion, and soul. They teach, joke, learn how to canoe, swap road stories and tales about musicians they’ve played with (musicians like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Carlos Santana), and share a profound musical philosophy driven by love, compassion, and the joy of life. A final jam session with all of the drummers and students, and even the film’s director, is transcendent with a joy that will leave you exhilarated for days to come.
