Siesta Key Drumming Circle

I had never heard of a drumming circle until we traveled to Sarasota, Florida. There on Siesta Key Beach every Sunday an hour before sundown a group of "drummers" get together on the beach. They drum for over an hour as people on the beach settle in to watch and listen. Along with the drummers a few dancers entertain the crowd and eventually get them to join in.

This year we ventured back to the beach on Sunday night again. We were amazed at the number of people who  came with drums or percussion instruments such as maracas or tamborines. We were amazed at the number of people who came to be part of the audience. And again, we were so amazed at the number of people who entered the circle to dance, hula hoop or move in their own way to the beat.


The drummers drummed for an hour until the sun set. They stopped drumming for just a few minutes but the crowd was so big and so enjoying the drumming that they started again! Now people were dancing and using hoola hoops with lights.

It was an amazing evening and I can't wait to go again. If you are ever in the Sarasota area on a Sunday night be sure to go to Siesta Key Beach to be a part of the Drummers' Circle!
