Members include Annegret Baier from Portland, Lizzy Direcktor from East Boothbay, Shirsten Lundblad from Brunswick and Tori Morrill from Palermo.

Inanna takes its name from the ancient Sumerian goddess who was worshiped more than 4,000 years ago during a period when it is believed that the drummers were predominantly women. By expressing their ties to the goddess, the drummers hope to raise awareness for the need of the divine feminine energies that are so needed to bring about balance to the planet.
