Many visitors to the Whale Spirit Drum Circle feel moved by the energy of the circle. This sparks the question “what drum should I buy”? Well, we have ideas about this. We just added a set of drum purchase recommendations to the site. We talk about our unique climate on the Oregon Coast that makes selecting a 12-inch synthetic Djembe the drum of choice for the North Coast. Go to the section called RECOMMENDED DRUMS in the menu page.
On April 6th 2019 the Whale spirit Drum Circle met for the second time. 25 drummers came to play togeter. Most were “locals”, but we did have a few out of towners join us. Many of the “whalers” were sporting new drums they purchased since the first meeting. We are thankful for all the support the North Coast Community is giving us on our new drum circle. Our next drum circle is on May 4th, 2019. We are not sure at this time if we will be in the Seaside Community Center or at the turnaround in “downtown” Seaside. The Bob Chisholm Center sounds wonderful with it’s arched ship like cealing and long house vibe. But if the weather is nice nothing beats the beach in Seaside Oregon for drumming.
