"What is a Drum Circle?"

In a drum circle, it's more than just people sitting in a circle and drumming. It involves a variety of percussion instruments that complement different rhythms and activities.

It's not only a fun experience, especially when you incorporate the singing but it's also a wonderfully relaxing way to make music together. People of all skill levels can participate, making it inclusive and enjoyable for everyone involved.
