What is a DORIT?
A DORIT is a wooden bass box drum with melodic metal strips attached. The combination of the Cajon and the Marimbula.
a Cajon is a wooden box drum with sound holes cut out of the center of it to allow the sound to resonate. Some Cajons have a metal wire inside of them, that creates a sharp snap, similar to snare drum.
A Marimbula is another instrument containing metal keys. These metal strips are tuned to different pitches, and are plucked to produce music. The marímbula is apart of the lamellophone family of musical instruments. The marimbula provides the bass, rhythm and harmony, and it can produce simple melodies as well.
what makes a DORIT so unique is that is combines these two tribal instruments into one rhythmic, melodic synthesis. A DORIT reinvents percussion instruments, touching back and honoring it’s rhythmic roots, and reaching forward toward an evolved world of music.
This bass box is a great new addition to any musician, instrument collector, or art enthusiast.

WHY MAKE INSTRUMENTS??
The most important part of building these instruments is the music. We believe that playing an instrument has a tremendous healing effect on people, and can inspire health and well being. The act of playing is essential and instruments motivate us to embrace our inner rhythm and deepen our connections with people.
Each drum is built with a playful intention of spreading joy and creativity with all who encounter it. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share such an inspiration with our local community and look forward to connecting with the world of musicians everywhere!
Instruments have been used as communication, meditation, stress relief, and playful exercise.
This is a multi-faceted instrument that can be played intricately, and simply.

MYLES BULLEN- IT’S A PROCESS (OFFICIAL VIDEO)
Written by Myles Bullen/ Produced by Laughing Animal/Video by Alexa Ward
It’s A Process
Fixed attention to turn illness into illumination
Make moves & move with the tides
Find your heart pound, don’t let your heart down
Now round together like a flock of birds
Whatever it is that your searching for
Coming to grips with letting go
I’m sick of constipated humans
Visions opened altered options
Reach a point and the get across it
Most obligations are overrated
All the world sees the sun and the moon
It’s a process, still it’s a process

This is great!
“Follow your bliss, and doors will open where there were no doors before”
There is incredible waste of energy in our world today. 13%-20% is how much potential energy is utilized in most industrial societies. 80-90% of the energy is lost through extraction of resources, refinement, transportation, distribution, and use. And energy wasted by crude industrial era fossil fuel infrastructures is mirrored by the waste of potential human energy. Only 13% of people are engaged and fulfilled by their life’s creative activity that we refer to as “work”, according to a 2013 worldwide Gallup study. This suggests a huge waste in human creativity and potential.
Most people are resigned to the belief that not everyone gets to follow their passions in life. Only the lucky few creatives and highly educated elites can do that while the rest of us must submit to some form of drudgery. You…
