Beat of the Drum

When we dance (when we dance) to the beat of the drum
We dance to the heartbeat of the earth
Of the Mother, Creator

Chorus
We [DANCE] for rain
We [DANCE] for healing
We [DANCE] for seasons
We [DANCE] for joy
[DANCE] for children
[DANCE] for people
We [DANCE] for courage
We [DANCE] for peace

When we sing (when we sing) to the beat of the drum
We sing to the heartbeat of the earth
Of the Mother, Creator

Chorus: [SING]

When we pray (when we pray) to the beat of the drum
We pray to the heartbeat of the earth
Of the Mother, Creator

Chorus: [PRAY]

We pray for change
We sing for change
We dance for change

About ancestrasings

The trio has shared their songs of spiritual journeys, relationships, cycles of life, steamy humor and holiday cheer throughout the Madison, Wisconsin area. They've crafted their life visions into songs that speak to the many aspects of life that challenge us as we walk in a sometimes less than perfect world. The women take seriously their craft of weaving harmonies into tense dissonance and resolving into resonance that can heal the heart. They assure us with their lyrics that we are truly human, and our spirits can fly, flop, or flourish, depending on any given moment presented. And in the end, we can smile, or shed or tear, or feel our heart space crack wide open. Their music rings true to be kinder to ourselves, one another—living the heart of compassion.
