Persian Rhythm Academy

The vision of the Persian Rhythm Academy is to help people experience a deeper connection to themselves and others by learning how to play ancient and spiritual rhythms on the Daf and chanting together. We will also create retreats and gatherings where people can meet others in the community and play, sing, jam and learn together.
