The Healing Drum

African Wisdom Teachings

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.
