- Any hand instrument.

- Your Kids, as they are totally welcome.
- Your Positive Energy and Smiles!
Drum Circle 3-ish till 6-ish – FREE at 159 St & NE 6 Ave in Miami, across the lake from the parking lot & playground. This is a young circle with a distinctly Haitian flavor. There are more good (really good) drummers than there are drums, so bring extras if you have them. There is some seating; but you may want to bring your own. If you want to bring kids, the playground is great (LOTS of kids – all playing very seriously); but it is across the lake from the drum circle, so if you feel that you have to be right next to your kids when they play you may not be comfortable.
Also notice th "ish" on the times. I have arrived a couple of times and not heard any drumming; but as soon as the drumming starts, the group materializes.
