Still out and about
Event:
Drum the day away
The Adelaide Community Drum Circle is a monthly free event. Normally it is held at Brighton Beach, but fortunately for those out West, on Saturday the 29th of February, the drum circle is being held at the beach at Semaphore South.

The event itself is not just a drum circle. It is a collaborative event with Breath in Peace who guide a yoga session suitable for all abilities, as well as a guided meditation. Involvement in the yoga and meditation is optional, but if you are interested, bring a towel to use as a beach-appropriate yoga mat.

Otherwise, just show up for the drum circle itself. If you want to actively participate, you will need to bring your own drum (the hosts suggest a djembe). If like me you don't own a drum, bring what you have! Some people bring tambourines; I have turned up with finger cymbals - and they seemed to work fine with the vibe. All that being said, you don't have to bring an instrument (or be proficient at playing what you bring) - just clap along!

After the guided drumming, you can drum freestyle and people get up and dance to the beats for the rest of the evening - which continues well after the sun has set.

Event Schedule:

6pm: Start of event - Beach Yoga hosted by Breath in Peace Initiative.

7pm: Acknowledgement of Country.

7.05pm: Guided Drumming hosted by Adelaide African Beats.

7.30pm: Drum Circle - Freestyle drumming and dance


If you want to get even more involved, turn up early and take part in the informal beach clean. Also, Unjay Markiewicz of Shala Om Yoga will be making a mandala in the sand.

This is a fun, free family-friendly event created to build community. As they say on the event Facebook page: "We gather to share in Rhythm and Harmony".

On that note, Adelaide Community Drum Circle is "Inclusive, Child-Friendly, Smoke-Free, Drug and Alcohol-Free... just clean, conscious fun!"

If you have never been to a drum circle - or even if you have - this is a great event to attend. Apart from being free, it's friendly, welcoming and non-judgemental. A wonderful event to relax at, be in the moment out in nature and move your body freely.
