Off The Record
Drummers Enter The Stage And Take The Drumming To A Whole New Level
How is this even possible?!!
We have alienated the therapeutic effects of drumming.
Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression, states ThoughtCo. From the shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques were used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Research is now confirming the therapeutic effects of ancient rhythm techniques.
Recent research shows that drumming boosts the immune system, accelerates physical healing and produces feelings of well-being, a release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self.
Other studies have demonstrated the calming, focusing, and healing effects of drumming on Alzheimer’s patients, autistic children, emotionally disturbed teens, recovering addicts, trauma patients, and prison and homeless populations.
Study results demonstrate that drumming is a valuable treatment for stress, fatigue, anxiety, hypertension, asthma, chronic pain, arthritis, mental illness, migraines, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, paralysis, emotional disorders, and a wide range of physical disabilities.
Top Secret Drum Corps
When the Top Secret Drum Corps enter the set of the Edinburgh Tattoo in Scotland (a military tattoo is a military music performance), I wasn’t able to perceive how they do were able to do this without any error!
They are perfectly in sync, never make a misstep or mistake, and they up the ante with their amazing skills as the performance ramps up to an astounding finale.
I stopped and re-played this video a few moments, because to be honest, I am continuously mesmerized to see how they are capable of doing this in perfect sync! Believe me, you’ll do this too!
See the video below to experience this astounding performance for yourself!
