Drum circle is a workshop organised by Taal Inc. for music enthusiasts. It is all about a community
percussion, where people come together just for the sheer joy of drumming. Taal had been
organising Drum Circles for a longer time now. Earlier in Goa, this November they had organised a
Drum circle with the Cause of environmental protection.

joy and peace’. Come be a part of this circle which is devoid of hierarchies, judgement, right or
wrong, or expectations. It has just two things- expression and interaction.
