Using the power of music and drumming to create community, motivation and communication is one of the oldest evolutionary secrets of human success. This power is still at work today. Music also reaches those areas in us that are inaccessible to rational arguments directly via the limbic system, an evolutionarily old part of our brain responsible for emotions. The result: What we experience in this way has a deeper and more lasting effect than any presentation, no matter how perfect.
