So, whats it all about?
The participants make up the music as they go along, using their listening and playing skills to make musical connections and express themselves in any and all ways that feel right. Participation is voluntary and often includes drumming, singing or chanting, dancing, and listening. Community drum circles often attract both regular and drop-in participants of all ages and can take place just about anywhere. Community drum circles are the original and most popular form of improvised community drumming.
All Durban drummers & music lovers come experience an acoustically phenomenal amphitheater built from stone with hand carved solid wood benches in a truly unique Castle setting constructed in the early 1950’s!
What To Bring!
Don’t worry, even if you might think that you are rhythmically challenged. Just get started and you will find rhythms inside of you that you didn’t know you had. By actively participating in the drum circle event, you will find that the excitement and rhythms that surround are all you need to fully contribute to the group song. You don’t even need to play a drum. You can bring a simple percussion instrument like a shaker, a bell or a woodblock

Directions: Exit Durban on N3. Go past the Pavilion Shopping Complex on your left and keep a sharp lookout for the M13 glide off which says Pietermaritzburg / Pinetown. Take that and carry on until you get to the Exit 28 which says Old Main Road / Hillcrest. Please note that there are other Old Main Road turnoffs but you stay on the M13 until you see Exit 28. Turn RIGHT at Traffic Lights onto Old Main Road. Travel past TOYOTA dealership on your left. Turn RIGHT into GREENWAY CLOSE. Enter through the fence gate by the DRUMSHACK signpost & TURN LEFT along the gravel road for 5meters to the parking area.
According to the Bambara people in Mali, the name of the djembe comes from the saying “Anke djé, anke bé” which translates to “everyone gather together in peace” and defines the drum’s purpose. In the Bambara language, “djé” is the verb for “gather” and “bé” translates as “peace.”
No experience necessary. It is all for fun. Our community drum circle is open to all – to experience group drumming, to appreciate percussion as a music form in its own right, to release and to upload positive rhythmic energy from the loud sound and vibrations from the drums!
