Drum Circle Facilitator/Rhythm Advocate
Natalie Pipkin is an Indianapolis based Drum Circle Facilitator, Home Educator, wife and mother of two. Influence from African drum griots, a decade of participation in drum circles, and continuous involvement with the Percussive Arts Society, has given Natalie a great appreciation for the power of drumming.
With inspiration from Babatunde Olatunji, Natalie answered the call and formed The Pulse Project Indy. Group empowerment drumming for cultural, social, emotional wellness, development and justice. Natalie’s desire as a facilitator is to make community drumming accessible, and transformational in her community. Her ultimate goal like Babatunde, is to see a drum in every home. Making group drumming the heartbeat of our communities.
Natalie is a Remo HealthRHYTHMS trained facilitator, Village Music Circles graduate, as well as a professional member of the Drum Circle Facilitators Guild.
