Professor of Psychology Edward Large has studied a group of bonobos (apes) at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens in Florida with fellow researcher Patricia Gray, a concert pianist and director of the biomusic program at the University of North Carolina, to see if these apes could drum to a beat. After zoo staff demonstrated how the drums were used, the bonobos would voluntarily drum along with the staff members. Their drumming abilities matched that of a human child, accurately tracking a beat in bouts rather than continuously. Professor Large was also featured in The Atlantic.
