is one of the easiest forms of musical expression, rhythm flows
though our bodies, and the world around, drumming and rhythm
making reconnects us to that universal rhythm inside ourselves,
the community, and world. A
drum circle is a rhythm-based event where a diverse group of
individuals and instruments are gathered for the common purpose
of empowering a community with creative self expression in a
group music making experience. Rhythmical expression is as ancient
and unique as man and found through out world, represented in
art, celebration, meditation, and wellness situations. Drum
Circles are commonly used for social gatherings or to promote
wellness in populations such as nursing homes, assisted living,
at risk youth, mentally or physically challenged, and various
community / corporate situations.
Community Drum Circle is a place for individuals to express
themselves through the use of drums and percussion instruments.
These instruments are accessible to a multi-generational and
multicultural community. An individual can express themselves
through the instrument without much skill or technique, becoming
a part in the group song. The use of different timbal instruments
(drums, shakers, bells, etc.) allows the group to experience
a metaphoric relation of the unique individuals involved in
creating a diverse spontaneous rhythmic song, fun for the
the whole group. As the groups sounds evolve, participants
begin to hear the rhythmic interdependent relationships creating
the songs. Conversations through rhythmic pulses emerge as
the community becomes connected beyond the music produced.
