"The Healing Drum" traces the extraordinary cultural legacy of the Minianka tribe of West Africa, for whom music serves a sacred, healing function for the individual and society. The authors explore the Minianka view of humanity, music, and the cosmos relative to work, celebration, herbal medicine, dance, trance, initiation, and death.

The first book of its kind, delivering a message of untapped wisdom and power from a little-known culture through the universal medium of music.

" Part two provides examination of the more public role of music as a sacred healing practice in Minianka culture." ? " This is not actually a scholarly book, but that is part of its strength: the subjects discussed in Part One, about Minianka culture as a whole, are those covered in standard ethnographic studies." ? & quot; I have been searching for an authentic, traditional CD with chanting and singing, and now I have finally found it!& quot; "The Healing Drum is more than a literary autobiography; it includes considerable ethnographic information about Minianka culture" "This is music that hasn't had its wings clipped; music that still possesses the full potential for the sacred and the magical that it had at the beginning of the world."--"Magazine of the Place des Arts" ""The Healing Drum" is more than a literary autobiography; it includes considerable ethnographic information about Minianka culture" "I have been searching for an authentic, traditional CD with chanting and singing, and now I have finally found it!"
