Drum Circle

The Cesar Chavez Solar Calendar rang with drumbeats at sunset Wednesday as a group of musicians and friends who found each other at Lake Merritt in Oakland brought this venue to life. “We could see that this was a sacred spot,” said Fek’ad Wolde, one of the organizers, “and a perfect place to honor the ancestors and make a sacred drum circle together.” Wolde is a CEO of Infinite Vortex of Light, “a social enterprise working to provide an alternative perspective on health, spirituality, identity, expression and sustainability.” The gathering of about thirty people, including listeners, was an informal pickup group that’s been meeting on and off in Oakland for about five years, Wolde said. This was their first time making music in Cesar Chavez Park.
