Page updated 05/15/2013 I update this drum circle finder monthly so everyone can find fun places to drum, dance, & have a good time.
Tribal & facilitated drum circle listings for Australia, Canada, The UK, Europe, and many others. They are all are current & updated to
the best of my knowledge. If you know of a new drum circle, correction, or a regular meeting drum circle in your area that isn't listed,
please let me know, so I can include it. Also check the bottom of the page for FaceBook, and the drum circle Meetup.com groups directory.
I've been maintaining and updating this list for about 12 years now. I've tried to make it as user friendly as possible. I just want to help get
the word out where drum circles are. Hopefully there is one near you to check out, or if you travel somewhere, it will help you find one.
You don't need to register, give out your email address, or anything like that. I'm just trying to help drummers & friends to connect.
These drum circle listings are alphabetically listed by country. Just click below on the one you're interested in, & it will jump to it.
You can also add one time drumming events at the FaceBook page at the bottom. Most of these drum circles are very well established.
Some of them are facilitated, some are tribal. New circles are constantly being added to this page, and some unfortunately come
to an end. I'm not always notified when they do, so it's a good idea to check the individual contact information out first.
Drumcircles.net is a sole proprietorship owned by Shannon Ratigan.
Times are hard for us in the arts. To give you a good value for your money, I'm including a free drum circle CD with orders of my 2 hour
DVD "101 Drum Circle Rhythms" off my website. The CD is over 70 minutes of live drum circle action. You get both disks for $15 + $4 shipped
anywhere in the World. There's a YouTube video sample below, and order information. The proceeds help me to fund work in our community.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my site. Please consider picking up a set of my drum rhythms, or drum circle CD's.
A 2 disc set is ten bucks + $2 shipping. I also have a 4 CD set available in mp3 format for $13 + $2 shipping.
You get over 5 hours of live drum circle jams to put in your mp3 player, iPod, iPad, smartphone, or any
other mp3 compatible device. It's some fun listening, and a pretty good deal! Here is the page link:
FaceBook Drum Circle Finder Page. Lots of listings posted by others, but you need to visit the page link in order to see them.
Please consider joining and add your drum circle info if you like. You can include photos, videos, and links about your

At my home page drumcircles.net I offer my 2 drum circle rhythms CD's for $10, 2 hour rhythms DVD for $15, and 300
page book, "A Practical Guide To Hand Drumming And Drum Circles" ISBN 9780615274102 ($17.95 with a free facilitated
drum circle jam CD) I also teach hand drumming in person, & online to children and adults. I work with a variety of
groups, and I facilitate drum circles around the ST. Louis, Missouri area. I do some charity work for a number of
worthwhile organizations. There is a little wear and tear on the drums & percussion I provide at these events. The
proceeds from the sales of my drumming CD's, DVD's, and drum circle book help me to fund work in our community.
I try to offer them at as reasonable a cost as possible. As an independent artist, funds are always tight, so I
always appreciated a product that is a good value for the money. That's the idea behind my book, CD's & DVD.
Thanks in advance for helping us out with repairs, and expenses to keep this kind of work going.
There are lots of free things on my site. Drum circle jam mp3's djembe ringtones, & more.
I hope the drum circle finder helped you to locate a drum circle in your area. Again, if you know of a weekly, or monthly circle
that's not listed, please email me from the link above, and let me know, so I can add it for the benefit of others. The global
drum circle directory is updated regularly. Thanks for your comments, support, and the kind words. I really appreciate it.
Need Some Drum Circle Advice?
If you live out of the Missouri area, and need some advice, suggestions, ideas, or anything at all about hosting
any form of drum circle, I am more than happy to try and help you along. Even if you arn't sure what kind of drum
might be right for you, or your group, just email me and I will try to help you out. I don't actually sell drums,
but I do have years of experience with most major brands, styles, and retailers. I can suggest the places to you
I buy mine from. If you are wanting to host or facilitate drum circles, this art form has evolved a lot in the last
10 years alone. Art can be very subjective. There used to be only one or two widely accepted ways to facilitate
drum circles. Now there are dozens of styles all around the country, and around the world.
Think of it like the way martial arts has changed. It used to be if you were proficient at Judo, Karate, wrestling,
or some other disipline, just being an expert at one style left most at a disadvantage. The ones who are the most
well rounded in all the different styles do the best now in mixed martial arts. And drum circle facilitation is similar
in this way. We have all these different cultures that each have their own style of drumming, and ways of group drumming.
So in my opinion, the way to become the best, is to try and learn from as many facilitators as possible. (Not just one)
And also learn as many cultural styles as possible, so you can be more well rounded in your skills, and work with any
group under any circumstances. Try to study, or study with as many professionals as you can. The learning process should
never end, because we are in an ever evolving field. Your style that you develop can be uniquly yours, a combination of
the best of all of them. It takes a lot of work to be a good facilitator that understands group dynamics, & musicality.
300 page book, "A Practical Guide To Hand Drumming And Drum Circles" is $17. A drum circle jam CD is included.
If your desire is to get much more in depth with this, please consider picking up my book. It goes into
starting a drum circle, or drumming program, and how to keep it fresh and interesting for all different
kinds of groups. I cover all of this, and much more in great detail. The page link for it is below.
Check out a few more of the 101 Drum Circle Rhythms in this YouTube video. There are 7 rhythms here, each about a minute long,
just like they are on the 2 hour DVD. Actually, there is 120 of them, but who's counting. I hope you enjoy a couple of them!
