What seating is required for this style of drum circle?
No seating required. Give us open space, please. It works best under these conditions as we can get the group to move, dance, enjoy and be a samba band.
I've already done a drum circle
Great. And you possibly enjoyed it. If your question is whether beatswork is just a samba drum circle or similar to what you’ve done, then the answer is no. Consider this as an upgrade. You’ve done the basic version, now you have something better.
Will you use same drums as in Drum Circle?
Nope. In a drum circle we use African djembes. In Beatswork, we use five different latin percussion instruments to create a batucada bateira. Think of it like a samba drum circle but its not like anything you’ve experienced. Yes, percussion is involved. But they are so dissimilar that you might as well compare a car horn to a trumpet. God forbid !
I don't have 60 minutes, can we do this in 20?
Oh no. It’s like trying to make biryani within 15 minutes. Neither the cook nor the people who are being served will enjoy it. This is a great experience. You might as well cut out two slides from a presentation and include this activity for the full 60 mins. Guaranteed that a year later, people will still remember the activity and not the slides.
