New Moon Drum Spirals happen close to every New Moon
Throughout time and prominent in many cultures, the drum is a sacred instrument used to connect to the Spirit world, the inner self, and the world around us. The drum has a special ability to touch, deeply, the inner prayer inside each individual’s heart.
We invite all to join us during the new moon to experience traditions from around the world sharing their sacred drum inheritance. Through the beats participants will be guided through a journey of the heart, spiraling vibrations of love deep into the earth and high into the heart of the universe. Please bring your open heart and open mind so the ancient rhythms can plant good seeds into you life.
This Month's Guests - Drum Orchestra
Drum Orchestra is a high energy group drumming program. This program takes the drum circle concept to a new level and is fun, interactive, and high-energy. From the perspective of West African drumming traditions, each participant is given a drum and other percussive instruments to experience being a part of a rhythm orchestra – in which each small contribution is vital to the making of a unique musical creation. This program has a sense of humor and is fast paced, giving participants an experience and taste of the creative process.
Following some fun and playful rhythmic exercises, designed to establish group coherence and to promote teamwork, the group will learn about the musical instruments and how to use them. Using guided rhythmic activities and instruction, the group will then begin to establish a simple layer of basic rhythm and continue layer by layer to build a unique and beautiful musical creation.
