How will we will explore themes of volunteering, multiculturalism, unity and inclusion by banging on drums? Read on!
Just the simple act of sitting down and making music together embodies the concepts of inclusion and unity while at the same time boosting creativity and confidence.
The drum transcends all boundaries of race, religion, age, gender, social position. Interactive drumming breaks down barriers of hierarchy, age, gender, culture and language.
The drum is the most powerful of the musical instruments.
It is an instrument that lives in every culture around the world in one form or another.
What makes hand drumming so inviting is that it is quite easy for inexperienced players to pick up without the frustration of learning technical skills. When you join a drum circle your only task is to contribute what you feel comfortable doing and the circle finds a way to embrace it in the melody. This in itself provides stress relief and positive energy for your psyche. A drum circle creates a sense of acceptance and community.
A book like “Three Cups of Tea” can inspire people to think about what they can do to make the world – or their own community – a better place. Very similar to some of the things that can be accomplished with community drum circles.
If you can not make it to the library for this event then be sure to check out the Community Drum Circle that is happening at Traditions cafe in Olympia at 7pm on the 20th of October.
