Why Drumming Kills a Bardic Circle

Being just a little more serious on this subject:
I do tire of the mid-eastern drumming all the time. I enjoy that
sort of thing from time to time. My wife is a dancer. I have a
drum. I play from time to time.
But there are many other forms of drumming. I just picked up a drum
for the Sable Bande (a small military company in Bryn Gwlad that is
forming). We're getting data for drum beats used in military
settings. Drums were used as signal devices on the field. They are
used in many other types of music beyond that used for wiggling.
I'd like to see the use of the drum expanded and people explore other
areas. I've seen the directios that Cinric (sp?) has gone with
period drumming. There's so much there, it seems a shame that we
tend to grasp onto the one aspect of Middle-Eastern.
I also agree that I enjoy drumming more before I go to bed. 2am does
sound like a decent time to cut it off.
