Drumming, Overtone Singing, and Mind-Body Synchronization with Glen Velez

Since ancient times the frame drum has played an important role in ritual and healing. In this workshop, you will experience the pulsing of the drum with the rhythm of your own voice in a percussive language inspired by Konnakol, or South Indian rhythm singing. We will call for guidance and support from ancient drummers, using our honest endeavors to create a resonant body-voice-drum sound temple.

This workshop will explore simple movement, rhythmic breathing, and the tones of the frame drum to strengthen the connections among body, voice, and drum, as well as to experience the joy of being alive. We will use active listening, synchronized pulsing, overtone singing, and call and response to generate unity of purpose within ourselves and the group. People of all frame drum experience levels are welcome.

Glen Velez, a four-time Grammy Award recipient, has played a seminal role over the last 25 years by introducing the frame drum to modern audiences. He has taught extensively worldwide, investigating the healing properties of drumming and sound. As a master teacher, he has developed his own approach called The Handance Method, incorporating voice and body movement into learning to play the frame drum.
