Rhythm of the Saints
Transforming junk into the jewel of music
Rhythm of the Saints is an open-source community arts and performance ensemble with an unlikely nick-name: ROTS. Using recycled and repurposed materials to make instruments, ROTS blends traditional music forms and improvisational techniques, and tops it off with exciting dances and colorful costuming.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” – Helen Keller
Music is an entryway into mindfulness. Playing together, musicians experience the purity of being completely aware of what their collaborators are doing, forgetting themselves, and just existing. Ensemble music is a spiritual practice. It creates a connection and allows musicians to get out of the way, let go, and be – moment by moment by moment.
ROTS has a regular gathering each week; all are welcome. Please join us at the regular gatherings, and participate in workshops and lively performances all over the Twin Cities.
