Gaia Priestess Drummers

The Gaia Priestess Drummers are currently 4 members of the Gaia Festival community who meet in circle to practice ritual and sacred drumming using mostly frame drums. The all-women drumming group was formed in 2010 by Kris Oster to participate in Gaia Festival’s closing ritual, but will continue way beyond that!
