Welcome to The Rhythm Inlet. We are Barbara Gail and Jeff Hanna, partners in life and work.

Since 1994, we have been sharing the rhythmic music and instruments of the world via our hand-drum and percussion retail store, mobile sales and service, drum re-heading and repair, classes (djembe, conga, frame drum, Brasilian batucada, etc.), workshops, community programs, and performances.

We encourage all ages to "Discover the Universal Language of Rhythm!" through our public events, school enrichment programs, conference presentations, retreats, weekly classes open to the public,

and other gatherings. Servicing Central and Southern Maine, Sarasota County Florida, and beyond!




We invite you to view the above YouTube video of our students performing at EcoFest in Sarasota, April 2010. Also, please visit our new YouTube Channel! There you'll be able to view our 3 drumming duets (on djembes, congas, and frame drums), and our 2009 students performing with us at The Wellness Festival in Sarasota, Florida. For our YouTube Channel, simply click HERE.
