White as a winding sheet, Masks blowing down the street: Moscow, Paris London, Vienna all are undone. The drums of death are mumbling, rumbling, and tumbling, Mumbling, rumbling, and tumbling, The world's floors are quaking, crumbling and breaking.
See, the conquering hero comes! Sound the trumpets, beat the drums!
The most persistent sound that reverberates through men's history is the beating of war drums.Arthur Koestler
Art is long, and time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Hey, Johnnie Cope, are ye wauking yet? Or are your drums a-beating yet? If ye were wauking I wad wait To gang to the coals i' the morning.Adam Skirving
the streams buck like rams in a tent / whips crack and from the hills come the crookedly combed /shadows of the shepherds. /black eggs and fools’ bells fall from the trees. / thunder drums and kettledrums beat upon the ears of the donkeys. / wings brush against flowers. / fountains spring up in the eyes of the wild boar.hans arp

On the infrequent occasions when I have been called upon in a formal place to play the bongo drums, the introducer never seems to find it necessary to mention that I also do theoretical physics.richard feynman
Art is long, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We’ve digitized the revelations does our rehearsed recitation go any deeper than our throats? Our calls to prayer they seem to rise up to the skies, conferences and lectures, seminars for you and I. The words that blow away with the nasheed that make us cry, yet why are the drums so silent?dawud wharnsby
Yakshagana Badagtitu Baylata with its vigorous, and fast moving and yet intricate steps, sometimes rough, at other times gentle and delicate in their varied patterns, captivates the spectator and engrosses him in their essential rhythm and movement. It is in the sensual response of the audience to this movement, the beat of the drums and the pervading and persistent rhythm of the dancers’ ankle bells wherein lies the essence of this dance.
Hail, hail rock and roll; deliver me from the days of old. Long live rock and roll; the beat of the drums, loud and bold. Rock, rock, rock and roll; the feelin' is there, body and soul.
Now deeper roll the maddening drums, And the mingling host like ocean heaves: While from the midst, a horrid wailing comes, And high above the fight the lonely bugle grieves.
Hats off! Along the street there comes A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums, A flash of color beneath the sky: Hats off! The flag is passing by.
No one knew what they was gonna do But Tchaikovsky had the news. He said - "Let there be light", and there was light. "Let there be sound", and there was sound. "Let there be drums", and there was drums. "Let there be guitar", and there was guitar. "Let there be rock" And it came to pass That rock 'n' roll was born. Let There Be Rock
In South India, singing in popular religious genres was accompanied by drums often played by women . In Carnatic music, however, women were mainly singers, and sometimes played violin or vina , but very rarely played flute , and never I think the oboe like nagaswaram... one of the characteristics of South Indian classical music has been its tendency to absorb and adopt foreign, mainly Western instruments incorporating them into the sound ideal of Carnatic music. I am talking about the violin and the harmonium in the nineteenth century, and the saxophone , clarinet , guitar , and mandolin in the twentieth century.
