“The sound of the drum is the voice of the Great Spirit. When it speaks, our hearts beat together as one” (Black Elk-Sioux Spiritual Guide)
In shamanic symbology the drum is the beating of the heart and its sound makes us vibrate together with the heart of the cosmos. It is the language that unites Father Sky to Mother Earth and which is expressed with the powerful voice of thunder. It is also the means of transport by which the shaman moves to the different worlds: his rhythmic beating it takes him to other states of consciousness, to trance, to Spirit. It is in the inner rhythm that the ancient roots of the drum sink, born with the aim of amplifying the percussive act of clapping hands or any other part of the body. Thus man learns to give form and regular structure to his song and through the continuous beating of the drum he connects to the constant cyclicity of nature and to the rhythmic pulsations of his manifestations.
