Shaman Drum Nepal

Shaman drum / Schamanentrommel Nepal.

"The shaman’s drum is not just a rhythm instrument with which faith healers add an acoustic component to their rituals. It is a self-contained embodiment of the cosmos in which their owners travel in the course of their séances. (...) The drum’s numerous functions—as a musical instrument accompanying the recitation of mythical songs, as a pacemaker of ritual dances, as a vehicle on which the shaman travels through space, as a defensive and assault weapon against negative powers, as a diagnostic and prognostic instrument - make it a kind of all- purpose companion to its owner." excerpt from: MICHAEL OPPITZ : Forschungen an den Rändern der Schrift 26 January – 14 April 2018 exhibition at Galerie Buchholz - Edit Daniel Buchholz
