What is a drum circle?
A drum circle is any group of people playing (usually) hand-drums and percussion in a circle.
Typically, people gather to drum in drum “circles” with others from the surrounding community. The drum circle offers equality because there is no head or tail. It includes people of all ages. The main objective is to share rhythm and get in tune with each other and yourself and to create a community
It is suggested to bring a percussion instrument or anything that can be banged on to make noise can be used as a percussion instrument such as cans, buckets, pipes, etc. You can also bring any other musical instrument.
