There's A Drumming Noise Inside My Head: Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park Drum Circle

We are semi-regulars at the Sunday afternoon drum circle at Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park, which usually runs between 3 and 9 p.m.  When it's in full swing, as it frequently is in the summer months, it's quite a sight -- African dancers, yogis, tight-rope walkers, and all kinds of random, unusual things.  But we've always found everyone to be friendly and inclusive and we JAM OUT.  Sometimes we bring a picnic and set up on the lawn with friends, sometimes we bring Vegas, sometimes we bring instruments, and sometimes we just do a quick walkthrough.  It's pretty much always a good time and a different side of D.C. than you normally see.
