Girls cannot be drummers. Long ago on an island filled with music, no one questioned that ruleuntil the drum dream girl. In her city of drumbeats, she dreamed of pounding tall congas and tapping small bongs. She had to keep quiet. She had to practice in secret. But when at last her dream-bright music was heard, everyone sang and danced and decided that both girls and boys should be free to drum and dream.
Inspired by the childhood of Millo Castro Zaldarriaga, a Chinese-African-Cuban girl who broke Cuba's traditional taboo against female drummers, Drum Dream Girl tells an inspiring true story for dreamers everywhere.
