Reflections on the Summer of 2020 - Community connections!

Smiling Drum Women’s Ensemble had the pleasure of performing our musical repertoire of world drum pieces at a variety of outdoor venues in Minnesota this Summer. In July it was an outdoor event at Path of Grace church in Maplewood. In September we had events at three different Senior living facilities - Ebenezer Towers in Minneapolis, Cherrywood Pointe Cleveland Ave. in Roseville, and Riley Crossing in Chanhassen.

We enjoyed connecting with our audiences at each of these events by having them drum and dance with us (safely during this Covid year). We appreciated their interaction and enthusiasm!

Also in September we hosted a free Pop-up drum circle at Bde Maka Ska (Lake Calhoun). People joined in to experience the fun, healing and connecting energy of the drum.
