The YAWA ECO DRUM CIRCLE (E.D.C) is a part of YAYASAN ANAK WARISAN ALAM (Y.A.W.A).
EDC is a musical percussion group that incorporates everyday object/recyclable materials that are turned into musical percussion instruments. Object such as plastic bottles, pots & pans, basins and even plastics bags, can be used as instruments at an EDC gathering. EDC is for all ages, sexes, religion, races and cultures.
They use instruments made from everyday recyclable objects that participants bring along to the workshop. The excitement of creating, sharing and making beautiful music together as a group, will allow the participants to experience the magical musical moments where one voice is created out of many.
Furthermore in the Drum Circle, as in life, music is supposed to be all about healing the spirit. They will sit in a semi circle with the conductor in the middle. The "conductor/leader/founder of EDC", Afiq Safwan, will be the person leading the performances.
The group will also have some movements on stage and they will go down the stage and play with the audience. This is their way to interact with the audience.
It hopes to promote environmental awareness among participants as well as to make participants actively take part in recycling efforts at home. EDC is a self-discovery and mind body wellness programme, where people gather to share a spontaneous recreational rhythmic experience. A Drum Circle is really a People Circle.
It is NOT a Drum Class!
