Welcome to Sacred Rhythms Drum Circle at the University of Southern California!

Everyone welcome! No experience needed. Whether you’re a seasoned drummer or a curious beginner, we invite you to join our monthly drum circles. We believe in the power of music to connect us to ourselves, to each other, and to what is most meaningful in our lives. Whether you’re seeking community or simply want to bang on a drum, Sacred Rhythms offers spiritual enrichment and good vibes—and it’s just plain fun! We provide a variety of drums, shakers, rattles, and tambourines.
