Beating in harmony a crafty way to keep fit
Haven’t the Byron Elder Beats come of age!! On Saturday 12th April, this wonderful and talented group of seniors showcased their drumming and dancing abilities at the Harmony Day Artisan Markets in Railway Park.
An audience of local community members and visitors, young and old, witnessed an inspiring performance by Gareth and the Elder Beats. People of all ages and cultures got involved (even our mayor Simon joined in!), and it was an ocean of smiles, drum beating and feet shimming.
At first, there was an air of intrigue surrounding those who were unfamiliar with the phenomenon that is the Byron Drumming Circle. Premala started the session with a lovely chant and some slow drum beats, and when Gareth turned the music up, it was clear that this was going to be a special performance.
Sharon Shostak from Echonetdaily was on hand to film the event and speak to some of the participants and people who make this wonderful event happen.
Enjoy and keep on drumming!
