DRUMMING FOR PEACE, HEALING AND UNITY
Jul 26, 2011 02:01PM
On Sunday, August 28 the entire planet will vibrate to the sound of simultaneous drumming in an annual call for world peace, global healing and cultural unity. The event is the 18th annual “Drums Around the World” which connects hundreds of community and village drum circles all over the globe.
This year, Norwalk, CT will again play host to Drums Around the World at Taylor Farm Park, in East Norwalk. This unique celebration is open to the public and attracts hundreds of drummers, dancers and onlookers each year, all seeking to build community while making a collective statement for world peace and healing.
“When we drum together, we start to communicate in a more meaningful way,” says organizer Randy Brody of Weston. “Our lives become less stressful and our world is a better place to live.” Besides organizing the event, Brody is one of the drum circle facilitators.
People who plan to attend are invited to bring hand drums and percussion instruments, voices, dancing feet, water, sunscreen and a chair or blanket.

Suggested donation: $20 adults/$10 seniors and kids (kids under 5 free). Free parking is available inside the park. Rain location: The Marvin community room, 60 Gregory Blvd., Third Street entrance.
