KDZ: The Kripalu Drummers

KDZ: The Kripalu Drummers have been performing together for more than a decade and are based in the Berkshire region of Massachusetts. They play regularly at Kripalu (the name KDZ is an abbreviation of "The Kripalu Drummers(z)") and at concert performances, drum circles, drum programs, and other events throughout the Northeast. The ensemble currently consists of six members: Shaun J. Laframboise, Bob Cronin, Adrian Bennett, Henry Horning, Kalpesh Alan Gaither, and Allison Gemmel.

KDZ has released two CDs, KDZ Live and Slang Rhythm Speak, both of which feature a healthy mix of tradition and innovation.
