Ancient cultures knew about the power of sound long before the term of “science” was coined. Egyptians, Hebrews, Native Americans, Celts, Chinese, Christians, Ethiopians, Hopi, Aborigines, all have spoken of Sound as a divine principle.

Worldwide, powerful shamans cured disease and mental anguish by coaxing evil spirits into leaving their victims through the power of chanting. Today, entire villages, from Africa to Alabama to the Arctic, continue to drum, sing or dance themselves into states of spiritual ecstasy.

The entire planet vibrates to the rhythms and sounds of music. No matter how primitive or advanced, music plays an inclusive and vital role in every nation and in each one of us.
