Once a Month on a Friday Night closest to Full Moon a group of light minded rhythmical people gather around a blazing fire in a colorful visual landscape under a star filled sky enhanced by the rhythmical sounds of Djembe Drums and other Stimulating Percussion. It’s a family friendly environment and everybody is welcome so come join us for an evening of rhythmical enchantment.
Community Drum Circle
The community drum circle isn’t the same as a workshop or facilitation. It is not dominated by one person. It is more a free flow gathering where everybody gets involved and contributes their individual style in a synergized way so we plug into a collective rhythm. It could be called improve. You could say this is more a jam session than a pre rehearsed rhythmic piece.
This is a place where drummers and like minded people can get together, Socialize and listen to some awesomely driving rhythms or get involved in the music.
Stress relieving, Grounding and Lots of Fun
In the Drum Circle there is seldom an audience because everyone is part of the performance. You will likely learn some new rhythms and expect every drum circle to be different. Sometimes there Guitars, didj’s, flutes and other interesting instruments and you get to see fire dancers, and hoppers.
This is a place where you can drum all night or just relax and socialize to the soul soothing rhythms of our heritage
Drumming is known to be very therapeutic and if one follows the rhythms of nature like the moon cycles then you will know that the waxing period is the creation or manifestation time and so the grows to Full. After that is the waning of the moon, a time for releasing our old and out dated habits and patterns as well as letting go of anything that doesn’t serve you positively anymore
The Cradle Drum Circle runs in sync with the cycles of the moon, connecting us more
with the rhythm and flow of nature and is held on the Closest Friday to Full Moon.
It is Food for the Soul, soothing and relaxing, yet rejuvenating in an excitable way.
Respect and honor this Sacred space

Drum Facilitation can bring many rewards for the individual and the team and our goal is to deliver a fun, inclusive and interactive program. We aim to promote the universal language of rhythm, through which we can all communicate clearly, share and enjoy ourselves. Our goal is to bring new and vibrant rhythms to each and every event, rhythms that are energizing and exhilarating and we aim to bring the language of rhythm to as many as possible regardless of economic, social, physical or mental ability.
The drum facilitation usually runs for up to an hour. Participants get a 9 or 10 inch djembe drum and the session begins with a discovery of deliberate sounds that the drum can make i.e. Bass, Slap and tone. Participants are shown the techniques to get these sounds . Then a facilitation begins where the group is shown and taught how to play a rhythm.Once everybody has got it Then the group gets divided into 3 groups and the participants get taught variants of that rhythm which are then played simultaneously with each other to create a single inclusive rhythm. As participants become comfortable with their drums and get into the groove some breaks are thrown in as well as call and response. The last part of the program is an open jam where participants use what they have learned and play along to the new rhythm the facilitators are playing and some percussion instruments like Shakers, Tambourines, Kashishi’s and claves are handed out for those who want to try something different
Our drum crew can be booked as meet and greet, cocktails or other applications to create that African feel for your party or event
