Largest Drum Circle in the World
1–5 pm • Batten Center Grill
Arthur Lopez will lead this event, accompanied by other drummers. The intent is to connect with peace-loving people around the world who have hope for humanity and are willing to work toward positive change. No drumming experience is required.
This is a shared audience experience in a drum circle rhythm-based event, where everyone has a voice and is empowered to use it. Lopez will bring hand percussion instruments to share; please bring any you may have. If you have them, please bring hand drums, extra percussion instruments, flutes, maracas, cajon, djembe, congas, bongos, and any other non amplified instruments to share in a fun-filled community drum circle where everyone is welcomed to share and express their rhythm spirit. You do not have to know how to play, just want to play.
The Hampton Roads Youth Poets, a division of Teens With a Purpose, will be a part of the drum circle this year. Energetic spoken-word poetry from the heart!
Stay tuned for details & Facebook Event posting
