PHUKET DRUM JAM – Free Drum Circle in Phuket
So you think you can drum ? Then PHUKET DRUM JAM is designed for you. Beginners and experts alike, Phuket drum Jam is fun ! “How can that possibly be” you might ask…Well that is the whole point, joining together as a community sharing a common beat / vibe regardless of your skills. On top of that, the drum circle usually happen on a beach around sunset time. What a gorgeous place to try something new and envigorating as drumming.
It is true that regular drum circle gatherings need a few “key players” to keep the groove going, most of the time there will be a few core drummers that are there at every circle that will make sure that the beat keeps a continuous pattern so that anyone can easily tag along and join in the fun of Drum gatherings in Phuket. Start with a pulse ! everybody can do it, a simple thump on the base beat will do and weezzzz you are in ! The fun part begins when you start feeling comfortable drumming. Sometimes it will get slow so you might feel like softening your slaps a little bit and then you might here someone bring the pace faster…That means go wild ! It’s all very natural really.
Now in my opinion, besides all the known benefits such as calming your mind, healing the brain and body through beat waves and all the things drum leaders will try to explain to you, the best part about these event is meeting cool people.
No matter when you decide to go, there’s always a bunch of open-hearted smiley people who join these drum circles and that is to me the real strength of these events. Meeting and being part of an amazing group of light-minded community living in Phuket or just passing by. It reminds me what it feels like to live in the Now. In a way, it is almost as if drumming, alone or in a group, feels rather similar to actual meditation and self retreat. You try to forget yourself and be led by the beat.
