You can hear samples from both double album sets of drum circle music on mp3 at CDBaby.com
If you can pick up a track or a double album, it helps me to fund work in our
community, and I really do appreciate it. Page updated January 2018
There are 23 separate tracks on these CDs, each one about 7 minutes long, plenty of time to relax, and get into it.
Over 2 and 1/2 hours of drum circle jamming in all. Everything from Hip Hop, Freestyle, African, Taiko, Belly Dancing,
Native American - to spoken word, and a bunch more drum circle fun. But there is lots of serious djembe and doumbek playing
on here. Not to mention some amazing didgeridoo, flute playing, chanting, singing, crazy instruments, and a little comedic
hilarity for good measure. You can hear how much fun we were having creating music with musicians from all different paths,
cultures, and walks of life. I hope you enjoy all the amazing jamming, grooving, dancing, craziness, spontaneous self
expression, and variety that went into these wild drum circle jams. I started them out, and the magic just happened.
It's pretty hard to get clean drum circle recordings. Many of them come out sounding mushy or with background noise.
Overly orchestrated ones in recording studios can be a bit stale and don't have that organic sound we create.
These live recordings came out great. They are clear and clean sounding because we were able to use 4 microphones and
a soundboard. They were recorded at live concert venues with good acoustics. Just like at regular drum circles, we start
out different rhythms from various cultures and away it goes. You can hear a few mistakes here and there but that's how
drum circles go. On the other hand, the beautiful nuances of the Native American wood flutes, and the Australian
didgeridoos were lead instruments on a few musical pieces, because we were able to mic them up and hear them.
You never know who's going to show up, and what's going to happen at a drum circle. That's part of the fun.
Hand drumming, and going to drum circles can be life changing for you. Whenever you are feeling troubled,
you can always turn to your drum. When you want something fun to do for entertainment, a drum circle is
great for that as well. Because when you drum, all you think about is drumming. Drumming helps to heal
your mind, body, and spirit. Having the belly dancers out there helps a little bit also. We had
local bellydance teachers that brought their class out for "field trips". That works for everyone.
