Babatunde Olatunji’s Words of Wisdom

“I am the drum…you are the drum…we are the drum…”

“Rhythm is the soul of life. The whole universe revolves in rhythm. Everything & every human action revolves in rhythm.”

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.”

“Whether you realize it or not, we are engaging in a cultural revolution. We are bringing people from all levels of life, understanding and background together. That’s the wonderful thing about drumming.”

“The Creator wants us to drum. He wants us to corrupt the world with drum, dance and chants. After all, we have already corrupted the world with power and greed – which hasn’t gotten us anywhere – now’s the time to corrupt the world
with drum, dance and chants.” – Babatunde Olatunji
