WHO IS SINGING?
Keep on knocking, and joy inside
will eventually open a window
and look out to see who’s there.
RUMI, translated by Coleman Barks
COME YOUR VOICE IS WAITING FOR YOU AND YOUR SPIRIT AWAITS YOUR SONG
Intuitive Drum Song offers a way to explore the realm of the sacred through frame drum and voice. A way to gain access to the inner world through intuitive song and rhythm. It is a practice developed to gain familiarity with entering into the place where songs live. The realm where music exists, just waiting for a voice to hear it, and bring it into being. A way to dance in the melody of stars, to sing lullabies with babbling brooks, to excavate the unseen within the body, the pains that live in hidden places, the joys that want to fly on wings of frequency and delight. It is a vocabulary of soul, a way of knowledge that has been cut from so many lives.
This practice is an antidote to being told you should not, or could not sing!
At the heart of being human, there is a fundamental necessity to sing. Intuitive Drum Song is a synthesis if knowledge and practice to safely achieve “Sound Health”
” Sound Health is a state in which the physical body feels totally relaxed, fine energy flows without inhibition, quietude of mind prevails and body, mind and spirit are in unity”
James D’Angelo -The Healing Power of the Human Voice
This act of singing also releases endorphins, the brain’s “feel good” chemicals. When we do this in conjunction with the ancient tool of the frame drum, an amazing container is created. This is a practice to maintain “sound health” which I believe is one of the most revolutionary acts of our times – Just Imagine:)
“Vocal Sounds are a primary source of energy for balancing and stimulating the brain. As the fabric of breath, vibration, and emotion, the singing voice affects the body and mind faster and more efficiently than any other form of sound”
Silvia Nakkach – Free your Voice, Awaken to Life Through Singing
It would be my honor to help you reconnect to this good medicine. For you, for the good of your community, and the good of the earth.
The gift of singing and music came from my family who are musicians and I was surrounded by music from inception. Our community was full of music, I absorbed this discipline viscerally and began performing at the age of 4 years old. As a young woman, I attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, and went to New York’s New School for Social Research in their Jazz department. I am an eternal student, seeking the answers to fuel health, harmony and sustainable love upon this earth.

– Vedanta Sutra 2.1.33 –
“There will come a time when a diseased condition will not be described as it is today by the physicians and psychologists, but it will be spoken of in musical terms, as one would speak of a piano that was out of tune.”
