Summary "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.
Other author Hall, Mitchell.
