The new moon chant, drum and song circles are held every month near the new moon. They are an open space to share and expand our drumming skills and song/chant repertoires. All skill levels are welcome (and encouraged!) Bring any songs or chants that you want to share and drums and other instruments if you have them.
Here are the dates for the rest of the new moon song, drum and chant circles this calendar year.
July: Friday July 20th, 2012 Facilitator: Melissa Moon
August: Wednesday August 15th, 2012
September: Friday September 14th
October: Wednesday October 17th
November: Wednesday November 14th
December: Friday December 14th
These monthly celebrations are organized by individual members of the Montreal Reclaiming community. All traditions are welcome. They are generally held in a private home easily accessible by public transit (metro) and car.
Typically we will share songs and chant, share/learn drum rhythms, do some drum circle style drumming, and do some exercises to help us feel more comfortable improvising and harmonizing either as drummers or with our voice.
Let us know if you want to facilitate one of circles.
All circles start at 7:30pm and wrap up at 9:30 pm (out of courtesy to the neighbours!). Please arrive 5-10 minutes early so we can start on time.
If you are on Facebook, you can join the Facebook group for the events.
Please check the event page for the individual circles and contact the organiser for the exact location of each month’s circle. If you do not use Facebook, you can also email us at montrealreclaiming(at)grmail(dot)com for more information.
