The Sounds Of Brazil Return To Sagg Main Beach With Drum Circle Mondays

Spoorthi Satheesh | August 26, 2020 | Culture

Samba on the beach is back.


There is no better way to get over those Monday blues than with a rhythmic sway of the hip to Brazilian beats on the beach. For years, Richard Siegler and his Escola de Samba Boom team have brought their drums out to Sagg Main Beach at sunset to indulge in the pulsing sounds of Brazil. What has popularly come to be known as Drum Circle Mondays saw its birth more than 10 years ago when Siegler felt compelled to share his musical passion with anyone willing to listen. Going by the motto “If you build it, they will come,” every season starts with two or three participants and eventually grows into a crowd of enthusiasts singing, dancing and hula-hooping together. This summer, Escola de Samba Boom hopes to responsibly kick off the socially distanced season in mid-July, putting together what Siegler calls “the best party in the Hamptons.”
