Wolfdrummers Drum Circle
January 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm ESTFree
Definitions.net defines a drum circle as “Any group of people playing hand drums and percussion in a circle. They are distinct from a drumming group or troupe in that the drum circle is an end in itself rather than preparation for a performance. They can range in size from a handful of players to circles with thousands of participants.”
In 1991, during testimony before the United States Senate Special Committee on Aging, Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart stated: “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 themselves. To form a group consciousness. To entrain and resonate. By entrainment, I mean that a new voice, a collective voice, emerges from the group as they drum together.”
Wolfdrummers is a newly formed group, and this will be our second meeting! We will be gathering on Sunday, January 27th at 5:30 p.m. The event is free.
Please bring any drum(s) and/or percussion instruments (rattles, especially) that you have. We’ll have some available as well to share. Please spread the word – all are welcome!
