What is a Drumming Circle?
A drum circle, or rhythm circle, is a group of people creating and sharing a rhythmical and a musical experience. The instruments used are usually percussion instruments including; Drums, metal, wood, shakers and Boomwhackers.. The circle format is used to optimize listening and communicating. In a circle everyone is an equal participant with no person in the circle any more or less important. The sustained repetition of the pulse results in a rhythmic phenomenon called rhythmic entrainment. Entrainment uplifts the self physically, mentally and emotionally. There is a calming effect on the body and an energizing effect on the spirit.
