Interview Highlights:

Remo was on the forefront of developing women’s drums and empowering women drummers. http://remo.com/

Four elements of music discussed in the interview.

Rhythm – correlates to the body

Harmony – Everyone singing together (drum circle, choir)

Melody – The Heart. (the flute)

Silence – element for the mind

Women’s March in Washington DC https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Women%27s_March

“Music is born in silence.”

“Music is a global language.”

“Music belongs in your life.”

If you’re sick the shaman would ask you…when’s the last time you sang, where’s the last time you danced?

Participating in music is more effective in healing than listening to music.
