If you’ve walked through downtown Durham on a Monday evening this summer, you might have heard the beating of drums. The community drumming group Oxente (pronounced oh-SHEN-chee) formed in early 2019 and rehearses outdoors in Durham Central Park. These rehearsals are open to the public, as is the group itself—anyone can join Oxente, regardless of musical background, and its members describe it as feeling like a family. They perform samba reggae, an Afro-Brazilian genre inspired by the American civil rights movement and the music of Bob Marley.
