Trybal Revival
Beth Patterson, Maureen Kilcoyne & Anna Miron- with musical guest Leslie Michele.

Friday, 12:00am | Side Stage

Members of Trybal Revival offer an interactive ‘circle singing’ workshop. ‘Circle singing’ is a style of improvisational singing that uses simple forms for groups to create songs in the moment. Trybal Revival members will tell the story of the group and share the benefits of the practice including its use as a community building tool. To experience ‘circle singing’, participants will initially be led through vocal warm-ups and meditative toning practices. Trybal Revival members will then divide the group into sections and create parts for each section with the various sections parts connecting to create songs.

Trybal Revival

Trybal Revival Circle Singers’ birthplace was the drum circle. In 2007, we started to meet outside of the drum circle in founding member Tomme Mailes’s home. The communal improvisational style of circle singing that we practice is circular and often rhythmic. Trybal Revival members are diverse, coming from a wide range of spiritual traditions, identities and ages. Over the years, we have done performances and workshops, but the core of what we share is community. We believe that music making can be accessible to everyone. The simple forms that we use do not require musical training or any expert musical ability. We have found circle singing to be a spiritual practice as we listen deeply, trusting the flow as songs emerge, change, and end when they end.
