Keeping a beat for cultural diversity

Pier Park was alive with thunderous sound on Saturday. And it wasn't from freight trains passing along the nearby tracks. Drummers and drum troupes from around Metro Vancouver converged on the waterfront park to celebrate cultural diversity. The event was organized by the Musicians United for Social Investment Co-op as part of National Aboriginal Day.
