BUCKETS and BALAFON:

We are welcoming newcomers to both classes! For buckets all you need is a Home Depot sized orange bucket (or something of that nature) or an empty garbage pail! For balafon, you’ll need a balafon that is compatible with our set — I have one for rent and Lucia has one for sale (you can get her contact info from me). You can also purchase them through Jordan at Drum Victoria.
