Primordial drumming is exceptionally therapeutic for transformation. The rhythms and sounds of the drum unify and build world communities into a buoyant union of the body and soul renewal. Since the dawn of time, indigenous people everywhere have understood that music, dance, song and ritual are powerful spiritual practices for health. For the African villager, drumming is a spiritual practice and an integral part of the social and cultural fabric of village life.
In Africa, group drumming plays an important role during planting and harvest seasons to boost moral and encourage solidarity to achieve a common goal. Stress and fear are transcended when drummers unite, lifting spirits and renewing optimism.
The ancient rhythms invoke the power of Music of drumming to transform, and this language of the drum speaks directly to everyone about love, one-ness and togetherness in communities and society. The beat of the drum serves as a conduit between heaven and earth where life coexists in harmony.
When the practice of drumming is undertaken in a sacred way, profound altered states of consciousness can be experienced. Group drumming can double the alpha brain waves, induce deep states of relaxation, reduce stress and connect one to their transcendent nature.
The drum is a messenger to awaken the body and soul where one is transported beyond the ego. These rhythms have the power to elicit healings of all kinds. The ancestral wisdom carried in the lineage of rhythms is a tool for building community, creating coherent and loving interactions.

THE EFFECTIVE POWER OF THE DRUM
In modern times, scientists, researchers and psychologists give their own account of the therapeutic effect of rhythms. Recent research shows that drum rhythms strengthen the immune system, produce endorphins and release emotional trauma to create states of wellness. The healing power of drumming creates a balance that maintains the connection between body, mind and soul. It has been proven to have many therapeutic and transformative benefits. Research has demonstrated that energetic rhythms cause the brain to synchronize the two cerebral hemispheres. When the hemispheres pulsate in harmony, expanded states of awareness are experienced. Powerful neuronal connections are generated in all parts of the brain when entrained to the beat of the drum and even damaged locations can be enhanced.
More than ever, chronic pain is so very prevalent and continues to affect the quality of life. Drum rhythms and movement produce endorphins and endogenous opiates, the body’s own morphine-like painkillers, and excruciating pain can be controlled with drumming. The healing power of the drum relieves stress, tension, confusion, induces deep and profound relaxation, lowers blood pressure and transforms lives.
