Chakra Rhythms for the Djembe
Scroll down this page to view live performances of the chakra rhythms.
The concept of chakras, or personal energy centers, originated with the ancient Hindu Upanishad texts. They are associated with different aspects of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being. Many spiritual traditions and energy practitioners work with the chakras to bring about the development of our self-awareness.
Seven main chakras reside in the body, which correspond to different colors and musical frequencies.
These rhythms are now available for others to learn and play. Originally published as a 2-CD set, now each rhythm can also be downloaded. Each chakra rhythm has 15 tracks:
