Martin Klabunde has traveled and studied extensively for the past 18 years with traditional drum masters in East and West Africa. He is a Certified Professor for Mamady Keitas Tam Tam Mandengue International School of the Djembe and is an advanced student of a master healer from Mexico, who has taught Martin the ancient rites of Portal Drumming and Healing Ceremonies. Martin has studied music in Guinea, Mali, Uganda, and on the island of Zanzibar. This CD utilizes Martin's technical knowledge, spiritual wisdom and knowledge of traditional African music and culture. Music plays an important role in healing, it allows our spirit to move into the spirit world for healing to occur. Sound waves are vehicles of energy that are capable of carrying more than just sound. We can infuse sound with our intentions of gratitude, compassion, forgiveness, humility and unconditional love. These are powerful tools of healing that can transform. As spiritual beings, we have the ability to access multidimensional time and space. With pure intentions we can use time to help us in our quest for healing. A key to the door of multidimensional time is the drum and we can use the drum to access universal time. The intention of this CD is to create an opening (portal) into other worlds with the intention of unconditional love, forgiveness, peace and humilty for all beings. Special thanks to The Big Spirit, The Masters, Pedro and the tribe for thier unconditional love and support in teachng me about service, humility, compassion, forgiveness, gratitiude, detachment, love, life and death.
