The Paralounge Drum Gathering helps bring a community of people together to interact and educate each other. Music is intellectual stimulation. Spontaneous creation of music, drum circle, is a process of community intellect.
We are about to celebrate 10 years of Paralounge Drum Gatherings. For many the Paralounge Drum Gathering is not an event they attend, but a necessary journey to interact with a community they call “Family”. When a community comes together so often, it becomes a tradition!
