One of our members Björn Ressle recently visited Beijing, China and recorded this wonderful video of a drum performance at the Drum Tower of Beijing which he has graciously shared with us here:

Located in the old and charming district of Shicha Hai, the Drum Tower of Bejing is less than 1.5 miles north of the Forbidden City.  Originally built in 1272 for musical reasons, the Drum Tower is now a popular tourist attraction, with performances taking place every hour.

More information on the Drum Tower can be found on this Wikipedia page: The Drum Tower of Bejing

Thanks Björn!
