Why a Ramadan Drummer?
Playing drums at celebratory occasions is a longstanding tradition within Islam, evidence of which is found in hadith as well. All across Muslim countries, throughout time, a drummer would take to the streets to wake people up for their morning meal before a long day of fasting. Eventually, in most of the world, the tradition started to fade with the advent of alarm clocks. So Hello Holy Days brought him to modern day American society in a charming manner, akin to Santa Claus.
