Friday Night August 15th and Miami beach full moon August 16th

Mark Richards invites us to Bagua – 4736 N.E. 2nd Avenue in the Design District 305. 757. 9857

Bagua’s Vision: To create a physical space to house the most uniquely inspired, wonderful, harmoniously beautiful retail store/center and garden found anywhere
This Friday (8/15) we can drum at Bagua ) from 9PM till midnight.

Rain or (moon) Shine! – If it’s pleasant out, we can drum in the garden, and if it’s wet, we can play inside. Bring your instrument(s), whatever they are. Bring your desire to explore and experiment. I’ll have some extra drums.

Then on August 16th, we have the full moon party at the beach. Mixed reviews about the last couple of months. If you go, have in mind drinking is prohibited at the beach, and that beach patrol likes to shut down everything around 1 Am. If you’re serious about drumming, the best thing is to go early in the night.

The Miami beach drum circle – love and hate story

miami beach full moon drum circleIn the past few weeks a group of people have started a new internet group at Yahoo! called: “Miami beach Full moon circle”. This group was created to discuss and resolve the problems around the drum circle’s police intervention. If you haven’t attended any of the full moon drum circles, you might missed the beach patrol people closing down the beach and moving everybody out of the beach – that is city property-.
I myself had contacted on a previous attempt, some city officials for the display of art in a public place. Due to the nature of the zone planning in Miami beach, it seemed not feasible at that time, the use of a public park due to the possible noise complains… So, they suggested the beach, and the 85th st park, since it’s away from a dense populated area, and the noise produced by the drums is barely audible across the street trhough Collins’s Ave heavy traffic.

I think that the best solution for this issue involves an agreement between the drum circle people and city auhtorities, a definition of rules, of what’s possible and what’s is not. Perhaps it would be wise to create a document of intention by the Miami beach drum circle, and have it signed by all the drum circle enthusiast. I even see this as an opportunity by the city, since I have seen many curious turist approaching the full moon beaches to hear and experience the drum circles.
