The Sacred Arts Research Foundation and Golden Drum Community members have been cultivating their connection to sacred sound, chanting and mantra and medicine songs from around the world. Under the guidance and inspiration of Maestro Manuel Rufino, Taino Elder & world director of M.A.I.S.C, we have come together to create an educational platform for sacred songs to be learned.
Music is one of the deepest forms of prayer and healing that we carry with us throughout our lives. To learn, carry and sing a sacred song is an ability we all have, we simply need to tap into it. In this course, we invite you to tap into your own ability to use sacred song as a study, practice and way of prayer and expression. We will create an environment that promotes the development and learning of traditional sacred songs from all around the world. Each class will focus on a selection of songs, where we will learn the pronunciation, translation, and intention of the songs, as well as covering the melodic and rhythmic structure of singing the song.
Please bring a journal and pencil so that you may keep a record of the songs you learn. Bring a drum or rattle if you have one. All singing levels are welcome.
Please arrive 5 minutes early so we may start on time:)
