Sound Healing - Handpan Drum Concert
March 26, 2019
Location: Light of Grace Healing & Education Center, 5900 W. National Avenue, West Allis, WI
Kolibri presents an evening of peaceful meditation and relaxation with the resonant handpan sounds of Kristie V. and Russ A.
Kristie and Russ, who have both been playing the handpan for a little over two years, will play a variety of meditative pieces utilizing four different handpans (each with a unique scale) in a continuously flowing session (there will be no talking between pieces). The songs will also incorporate the soft sounds of some hand percussion instruments.
The handpan, also known as the hang drum, is a steel instrument played with the hands. Sounding similar to a harp, its music is very soothing and relaxing and goes well with meditation. Before the start of the session, there will be a brief introduction to the handpan instruments. There will also be a short guided meditation before and after the handpan session.
Participants are encouraged to sit, lay on the floor, or even stand - whichever is most comfortable. If you feel you would like to move around or dance softly, this is okay too! Seating is available or bring a cushion, mat, blanket, pillow, or whatever you need to be completely comfortable.
RSVP advised for space planning. Ages 14 & up please.
