N’GomaKundi- West African Percussion Group – contact Vanessa Morgan – 970-403-4150, www.durangodrums.org. Movement and rhythm are necessary for life. The beating of our hearts, our breath, neurons firing at a certain tempo in our brain, and countless other functions all have rhythm. Dis-Ease can be seen as a disorder in the bodily rhythm and loss of our connection to the universal rhythm of flow. Trance dance and drumming support mending of the psyche, discovering knowledge of the Self, visioning and expansion of consciousness. Just as our ancestors did, we can use the drum to restore balance and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health within ourselves and our tribe. It reduces stress, chronic pain, boosts immune function and deepens self-awareness and engenders a sense of connectedness with all of life.
