Glen Velez, a four-time Grammy® Award recipient, has played a seminal role in the history of world music during the last 25 years in introducing modern audiences to the frame drum. He has taught extensively in university and workshop settings worldwide, investigating the healing properties of drumming and sound. As a master teacher, Velez has developed his own teaching approach called “The Handance Method,” which incorporates voice and body movement into the process of learning to play the frame drum. His most recent recording, Rhythms of the Chakras Vol. 2 (Sounds True), is scheduled to be released in fall 2008.
