Pick of the Day: Drum for the World

Organized locally by Common Weal Community Arts, this is part of a global celebration in support of progressive social values that will see drums groups come together in different communities around the world to create a continuous wave of sound that will move from time zone to time zone as the day progresses.

In Regina, this effort will include the participation of two drum groups: Tribal Vibes and Skin & Bone. It’s being held at Artesian on 13th at 7 p.m. tonight. For more information call 780-9442.

I couldn’t find any video of Tribal Vibes or Skin & Bone in action, so here’s a video for A Tribe Called Red’s song “Electric Powwow” to get the beat going:


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
