Music plays a vital role in the healing traditions of West Africa. Among the Minianka of Mali, every healer makes music and every musician is a healer. A musician's apprenticeship includes the study of plants, magical words, proverbs, psychology and philosophy. Their music heightens awareness and connection to nature, while restoring balance and harmony. Master percussionist, author, teacher and healer Yaya Diallo spent his childhood studying music and medicine in Mali. On this recording you will hear many traditional instruments from West Africa including djembes, talking drums, bamboo flutes and balafons. You will also hear a Bafoko, the healing drum of the Minianka.
