A description of the experience

Jeremy Narby – Cosmic Serpent

Some trained shamen can coalesce imagery into sound and sing what they hear. Thus music plays an exceptionally important role in the belief systems of indigenous peoples and often the music produced by shamans when they communicate with spirits is hauntingly beautiful.

The source of the experience
