Sometimes a Drum Circle is a big party, sometimes it’s more like a ceremony, and other times it’s orientated to a specific goal or message.

What is a Facilitator?
A facilitator creates an inclusive atmosphere in the Drum Circle in which everyone feels comfortable and can freely develop their own sense of rhythm. He or she leads and accompanies at the same time. We are proud to work together with our facilitators and spread rhythm worldwide.
