Drumming Circle

A drumming circle or a drum circle is a group of individuals who are creating and sharing a rhythmical, melodious and a harmonious experience. No experience is necessary. The primary instruments used in a drum circle are hand held drums, but other instruments may also be used as well.

The participants will form a circle to play their instruments. Depending on the atmosphere, participants may stand, sit in a chair on sit on the ground. Drumming circles may be held indoors, such as at holistic fairs or outdoors such as at pow-wows. They may take place absolutely any place.

The drum you get depends on your purpose. There are other types of percussion instruments: from bongos, guiros, maracas, talking drums, taikos, djunjuns, and so on. The Native American frame drum (commonly used for journeying) is fairly popular.

You can usually find a drumming circle at a holistic health fair or by contacting a drum dealer in your area. No matter what type of drum you have, you are more that welcome to bring it and join in the circle.

Better yet, start your own drumming circle. One person begins the play and everyone joins in at their leisure and stops at their leisure. The melodious instantaneous rhythm is completely born out of synchronizing with another spirit with absolutely no drumming experience.
