Summary
What is music? What does it do to us? Through ancient non-European disciplines it is possible to rediscover the natural laws and magical properties of sound. This entirely practical book reveals the effects on the human psyche of Indian, Tibetan, Arabian and other Far Eastern techniques of vocal and instrumental improvisation, especially in religious contexts
