Bele Bele Rhythm Collective was founded by drumlady Kristen Arant in 2008. The BBRC is an intergenerational, diverse group of women who all share a passion for the drum. They study and perform tightly sewn compositions of West African polyrhythms complete with songs, breaks, and accompanying dancers.  The Bele Bele’s have performed at various venues including the Takoma Street Festival, The Birchmere, and the Virginia Women’s Music Festival.
