Siberian Ice Drummers

I've always wanted to learn the drums, and while I'm not getting any younger I'm also not getting any richer.  But that's the great thing about drumming in the modern era; anything I can strike with my hand becomes a drum and youtube can teach you to do anything.

The video is of course from youtube, but if you'd like to learn more here's an article from UK's Daily Mail:
