Power of Percussion


The Power of Percussion Podcast was conceived during a time where I was experiencing an awakening. I was attracted to the healing effects of community drumming and began facilitation community drum circles all over the Louisville Metro Area. As this grew, I felt more connected to my community and began to feel more alive. I noticed a difference in my overall health and mental state after every drum circle. This feeling I later discovered was caused by the brain entering a state called Theta. Theta is when our senses are withdrawn from the external world and focused on signals originating from within. This feeling prompted me to act which looks like me facilitating drum circles, drum meditation workshops, and using drumming to heal communities.

I decided to start the podcast by interviewing percussionists, music therapists, drummers, teachers, healers, students, and community members. I have since noticed that everyone has a connection to what the power of percussion has done for them. The benefits range from healing to happiness. It is with gratitude that I continue this drumming journey around the world to bring the power of percussion to you through my upcoming podcast series set to launch in Summer 2019.
