A drum circle is a gathering of people in a spirit of community. It is not about creating perfect sounds or rhythms. It is about creativity, spontaneity and creating an uplifting feeling of connectedness.
“We know that rhythm is the soul of life. Every cell in your body and mine is in constant frequency, in rhythm. Everything that we do is in rhythm. So that music, it attracts, it energizes every cell in our body” – Babatunde Olatunji, founding father of the modern drum circle
Entering into harmonic relationships is the goal not only of music. It is the goal of atoms and molecules, of planetary orbits, of cells and hearts, of brain waves and movements, of flocks of birds and schools of fish and-in principle-of human beings. All of them (or better: the cosmos, the entire creation) have harmony as their final goal. – Joachim-Ernst Berendt, The World is Sound
“A stone is frozen music.” – Pythagoras
“Rhythmic patterns appear throughout the universe, from the very small to the very large. Atoms are patterns of probability waves, molecules are vibrating structures, and living organisms manifest multiple, interdependent patterns of fluctuations.” – Fritjof Capra, The Tao of Physics
“The answer to the ancient question, ‘What is matter?’ is simply that matter consists of particles that are different nodes of vibration of the string, such as the note G or F. The ‘Music’ created by the string is matter itself.” – Michio Kaku, Physicist
“Music then is simply the result of the effects of Love on rhythm and harmony.” – Plato
