Drum Meditations (CD/DVD) is a fresh exploration into the magical world of vitality percussion with Budhi Harlow.
The Drum Meditations project is an exploration into the path of drumming for creative vitality. For over 20 years Budhi Harlow has researched the powerful practice of Drumming for multiple intelligence development and healthy brain function. The CD and DVD will take the listener/player into a powerful, clear and creative place utilizing the breath in sync with simple to complex rhythm patterns. The sound created by this revolutionary approach to drumming (as a way of meditation and vitality) has far reaching implications for how the world understands the true power of drums and rhythm language. The CD and DVD package will take the listener/explorer to a magical realm where anything is possible. Utilizing a variety of drums including Djembes, Bougarabous, DjunDjuns, Balafons, Marimbas, Zumos and Crystal Bowls the sound and practice of Drum Meditations will change how the world approaches rhythm education.
Drums are the original computers of ancient civilizations and these rhythm patterns are the DNA building blocks of the universal source code. Please support this revolutionary project that harnesses the deep power of the "Essential Rhythms" into an expanded concept of meditation.
