Drum circle is definitely the “Florida” way to celebrate the sunset! If you have not attended one before you are missing a very positive experience.
What is a drum circle? Wikipedia version My version: It is a group of people playing drums and percussion instruments to one beat. They usually sit in a circle – as the circle has no head or tail, it includes all ages, races, and the number of participants vary weekly, some are small, some reach hundreds. The beat resonates inside of you, and research shows it can be therapeutic.
The drum circle in Englewood is loosely structured and everyone there is friendly. They will help you find the beat on your drum. Some bring plastic Easter eggs with shells inside and pass them out to the observers so they can participate. There are usually hula hoops for those who wish to “sway” with the beat. It starts out with an easy beat, as it gets closer to sunset the beat increases and the crescendo is reached as the sun dips into the ocean.
It is a great experience you can enjoy every Sunday (weather permitting) one hour before sunset on the beach across from Gulf View Restaurant in Englewood.
