Greetings, William. A drummer I see. That's awesome. And also; funny that you mention 'Channeling positive energy through rainforest like rhythms' because I have heard some magnificently composed beats while wandering through nature. 


On that note; I recently attended to a drum circle that was about 500+ strong. It felt great, during and after. My vibrations were high, I was happy, and I woke up the next morning with out the back pains I had been dealing with for the past month...personally I fell that music has the power to project and manifest emotion faster then anything on earth. And I love it. 


Thanks for doing what you do.
