Drumming to Beat Cancer

Rhythm Nation: A unique and free drum circle, DRUMSTRONG, will be held on Saturday May 21. Come out and bang on something or dance at Yoonique Stone Music Cafe in Nai Harn lake from 6pm to 8pm – we’re drumming to beat cancer! DRUMSTRONG raises awareness and funds in support of cancer survivorship, education, and research through rhythm.

Drum circles bring communities together for various causes.

Drum circles bring communities together for various causes.

This event will represent Thailand in a worldwide concerted collaboration to beat cancer. I would like to invite all drummers in Phuket to come and bring your rhythmic spirit! A delicious barbecue will be served for only B100 per person.

Drumming circles have been used around the world and throughout human history to rally people for different causes, while bringing the fun and benefits of rhythm into people’s lives. There are three types of drum circles: the facilitated drum circle – an event with a professional facilitator who guides the group into creating music for community, educational, or therapeutic purposes; the free-form drum circle – an event that is not “guided” by anyone and is a more random and somewhat cosmic occurrence; and the cultural drum circle – an event where musicians play culturally specific rhythms such as music from Ghana, Africa.

Virtually every family is affected by cancer. In America, one in two men and one out of three women develop some form of cancer in their lives. If you would like to donate to DRUMSTRONG, bring as little as B20 to Yoonique Stone Cafe, where there will be a donation jar. You can also donate through Paypal: scott@drumstrong.org. We hope to see you there. Bring your beating heart and join this vibrant community energy!

Marco Monti is a drum circle facilitator and founder of the drumming event company SYNERGY EVENTS Co., Ltd. He is also the founder of the free and open group “Phuket Drum Circle” (on Facebook). He is a member of the Drum Circle Facilitator’s Guild, holding an M.A. in Psychology from the California Institute for Human Science. www.synergydrum.com info@synergydrum.com Tel.
