Rhythm and healing. Transcending powers in words, music, and movement
Starting point of this book was the wish of the editor, a musicologist, to analyze certain aspects of Candomblé ­ which crystallized as a project in the newly created ’applied research´ at the Music School of Basle, Switzerland (Hochschule für Musik Basel), the major part of the project being research on rituals of Candomblé at Salvador de Bahia.

Keywords: music and therapy, rhythm and healing, shamanism, Yoruba and healing, Candomblé, healing rituals
