The Eastern Medicine Singers Drum Group was created by Daryl Black Eagle Jamieson of the Pocasset Wampanoag Tribe. The founding drummers started in 2008 at the RI Indian Council in Providence and the group originally started to assist a native youth dance program. Since then we have added other drummers and women singers to enhance the sound of the group and primarily perform old style eastern songs they write themselves or are handed down old style eastern songs.
