X8 DRUMS & PERCUSSION, TOCA PERCUSSION and VORTEX Repertory Company invite you to the "Austin Community Drum Circle."
X8Drums.com, Swan Percussion, Rattletree Marimba and VORTEX Repertory Company give you a chance to beat your own drum at the Austin Community Drum Circle on Wednesday, July 24th.
There is nothing quite like a drum circle to make you feel as though you are part of the world around you. If you've never experienced the power of drumming with others, now is your chance to join the X8 Drums community. X8 Drums, Swan Percussion, Rattletree Marimba and VORTEX Repertory Company proudly invite you to the "Austin Community Drum Circle.”
Spend some time feeling the rhythm and invest yourself in the interactive experience of an evening drum circle right in East Austin. Coordinated by the staff members of Austin’s own hand drum shop X8 Drums & Percussion and led by nationally-recognized drum circle facilitator, clinician and X8 Drums endorsed artist Kenya Masala, this drum circle will be a fun and relaxing community event. Any type of instrument is welcome, so be sure to bring anything from your didgeridoo to your conga. X8 Drums & Swan Percussion will also supply hand drums to those without an instrument. All ages welcome and The Butterfly Bar @ The VORTEX will be open serving drinks and cocktails.
