Drum Circle by Marc Littman
My fellow musicians and I come alive between the rhythmic beats of the drum circle, losing our individual place in line but melding into a greater humanity. Thunderous ocean waves pound nature’s beat on the beach behind us. And we keep pace with our drums, our whistles, cowbells, tambourines and didgeridoos.
We’re a motley mix – young, old, white, black, brown, yellow and red. But as the caller in the center of the circle knocks three beats on his djembe drum, we all respond in unison until our faces blur, we breathe together and our spirits soar above the fray.
