Spirit of the Drum moves to director's beat
by JACKIE LOOHAUIS for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

In the middle of the sound and the movement, there's director Cecil Austin playing drums himself.

This University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee music professor founded Oma-Ana in 1995, when he taught at Sherman Multicultural Arts Elementary School.

"I had kids having a tough time," in school, says Austin, explaining why he began the citywide troupe. Plus, he wanted to use his knowledge of African heritage, music and religion to give the students focus.
