Sometimes a Drum Circle is a big party, sometimes it’s more like a ceremony, and other times it’s orientated to a specific goal or message.

Varun Venkit

Come. Drum. Be One.

Varun Venkit is a percussionist from Pune, India who has been playing the djembe for over 10 years and is an advanced level student of grandmaster Mamady Keita (president TTMDA). He was christened as 'TTM certified teacher' of the djembe by the grandmaster himself in Tulum, Mexico in 2014 and is the first Indian to be bestowed this honour.

Varun is also a clinical psychologist, drum circle facilitator, master NLP practitioner and published researcher who works toward furthering the use of arts as a training, self-expression and healing mechanism.

He founded 'Taal Inc.', an organisation that championed the arts and health revolution in India back in 2006. His aim and mission can be summarised by his motto, “Come. Drum. Be One.“
