Born in Nigeria, Onye brings the heart and soul of Africa to The Drum: Voice of the Village. He teaches the reader how to approach the drum, how to play the drum, how to use the drum for healing and awakening as well as for entertainment, and how to create and celebrate community through the power of the drum. Onye tells the story of his village - where the drum was the heartbeat of the people, sounding out the messages of a new birth, mourning the passing of an ancestor, dancing the joy of new love. The drum was always vibrating, speaking the emotions that connected the people of the village with each other and with the world. A pioneer in using music, rhythms and dance to bring diverse communities together, Onye shows how music has a profoundly transformative capacity to affect personal and societal healing. He teaches how to use the drum for health, healing and ceremony as well as for creating community. Onye Onyemaechi is the founding director of Village Rhythms and Insights for Healing. He is a celebrated recording artist, performer, producer, composer, teacher, mentor, healer and consultant. Book jacket.
