The Healing Drum: African Wisdom Teachings
Yaya Diallo & Mitchell Hall
Born in Mali, West Africa, and a member of the Minianka (Bamana) tribe, Yaya Diallo was raised in a culture that works, worships, lives & breathes to the beat of the drum. An instrument for transmitting traditional knowledge among the Minianka, the drum is the focal point of Yaya's story and his link - through the universal medium of music - with the Western world. The Healing Drum explores the Minianka view of the human being and the cosmos relative to daily work, celebration, herbal medicine, dance, trance, initiation and death. Music is a remedy for both physical and psychological imbalances, harmonising the forces of the visible & invisible worlds. With wit, intelligence and the sure gift of a born storyteller, Yaya Diallo brings the tradition of his people to life.
