Music Therapy: The Sacred, and the Profane

T.V. Sairam (Editor)
Synopsis Though music therapy is being increasingly talked about as a 'future medicine', its therapeutic application is archaic and time-tested. Traditions and rituals involved in shamanism and nada yoga have all increasingly employed rhythms and resonance for varying one's consciousness levels aimed at alleviating the human sufferings, thereby paying way towards human welfare. In the post-war years, the Americans recognized the importance of music as it addressed the trauma victims, destitutes, wounded soldiers all alike with such love and care, one hardly comes across from his or her own fellow species. This paved way towards a new profession viz., music therapists. While the feel good factor in music is undeniable and the impact of music on the listener's mind, mood and attitude is unquestionable, still the exact mechanism involved is not clear to the scientific community. May be, because music is closely linked to the human brain and we know hardly anything about this mysterious organ. Recent scientific research seeks to look into the brain functioning with the help of music and a new scientific discipline, neuro musicology in promising to unveil the mystery that clothes music as well as the human brain. In this new book, music therapy: the Sacred and the profane, we have attempted to bring together the renowned and expert music therapists from all over the world under one roof. Each article contained in this compendium not only sings the glory of music but also makes us contemplate how much more we have to do in our day to day life to align with those healing rhythms and resonance, which promise a wonderful time ahead to all those who are prepared to listen to.
