African Drumming
Fiesha Amlak’s palm drumming workshops are dynamic musical events. Group drumming taps into core energies and stimulates participation. It breaks down barriers, reduces stress, develops group cohesiveness, builds team spirit and most important of all, it’s great fun!

In the African Drumming Workshop, participants will learn about how the drum is used traditionally.

The Jamaica Family Roots Group supports individuals who are interested in connecting with their Roots. The Group has been involved in Genealogy for s number of years. To support their Genealogy some members have also undertaken DNA testing to support the paper trail. As a result connections have been made with DNA cousins across the globe.
The group meets in the 3rd Saturday of every month at Solihull Library. Solihull Library has the complete index of the Birth, Marriages and Deaths from 1878-1930. They also have several Registers. In addition to the Jamaican records there are complete records for some of the other Caribbean islands.
