The group has decided to go into retirement for a bit. What this means is that Kunundrum will not be available for performances. Thanks to all the schools, community associations, non-profits and events that have supported our performances in the past.
The Morrisburg Leader had a great review of the Intimate Acoustics show in December.
Exuberant and elated, the performers were clearly enjoying creating music. And the audience was just as enchanted. (The beat of the percussion really does get into your head and soul.)
There’s at least one video of us there playing Kpanlogo - a good example of what to expect if you book us!
One of Conrad’s friends was there and took some great photos. You can find Barry Thoms’ pictures of Kunundrum here:

Last night we participated in a drumming event at the Dunrobin Sonic Gym. First the kit drummers discussed their passion for drumming, how they practiced and followed by examples of some of their favorite rhythms. Kunundrum performed afterwards several rhythms including:
Here’s a photo from the Gym including the great backdrop of gongs:
