Saint Augustine West African Drum Circle

 

The Saint Augustine West African Drum Circle is a community event that has just begun. Every 3rd Thursday from 6:30pm – 9:30pm the beach comes alive. Hundreds of people join in a circle to create a local phenomenon. In this circle, you’ll hear the sound of bongos, maracas, harmonicas and drums, see people dancing to the flow of the music, observe children playing happily within the group and watch hula hoops and belly dancers sway to the beat of the drums. This is the best place in the sunshine state to take a swim in the ocean then dance in the sand.

This beach event in St Augustine is located at the St Augustine Pier and begins about 6:30. Percussionist / Artisan – Drum Circle Facilitator Michael Scott Thomas. We are Dancer Hooper & Spinner Friendly, & able to supply up to 20 Drummers with Djembes, Drums or Hand Percussion for those without instruments. It’s recommended to bring a chair along with an open heart and spirit.

What is a “Drum Circle” 

If you have never experienced a drum circle, you should! It is a celebration of life, community, and music. People sit in a circle while playing drums and other hand percussion’s, all while joining in to create an amazing group rhythm. Many believe that they are an effective tool for relieving stress as well as health & wellness. The circle is a fun, exciting and powerful way to bring people together through music. It’s a breath of fresh air in our fragmented stressed out world.
