Music the great mood enhancer

Have you lately experienced low energy levels or mood swings that pulls you down? If yes, then it is big time to seek a way to combat it. Our ancestors or ancient human beings created music for that very same reason - to escape boredom and sadness.

Music has been used for centuries for various occasions, festivals, fares and even weddings to signify change. It is primarily used to signal people about some important event. Especially drums have been used to gain the instant attention of crowds (when there were no advanced headphones that blocked our hearing). Remember that these were used much before electronic drums or digital drums were even starting to come in our thoughts.

Here I present to you different types of music from the traditional drummer, that can help you change your moods. These music have been created through thousands of years and so have stood the test of time.

In this particular article we discuss about two kinds of ancient music from North America and Japan. Thankfully at least a few of their kinds are still around and alive.

Allow yourself to change your negative thoughts and heal your mind with the help of music and let no sadness bother you anymore.

Native American music

We start of with Native American music or chants that have an earthy appeal. I find this kind of ancient easy drum music full of power and intensity to shift my concentration to a peaceful level.

The use of drums are very predominant in this music. It adds a war or ceremony theme that sometimes sends a chill down your spine.

Native American music itself comes in several types. Here I have links from youtube to some of their amazing music. Some of them are remixed beautifully for some added effect.

Japanese Taiko drumming

Taiko is the traditional Japanese drumming music that has been very close to their culture.

I found Taiko to be very energetic and physical. It prompts the listener want to stand up and dance immediately.

Again mostly drums are the prime instrument used here. The war theme also resonates in this music form.

I will write in detail about drums in my future posts. since I need more research on drums.
