The Tzolkin Trilogy

Yidaki music for sound therapy

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon

The didgeridoo, or yidaki, is one of the most ancient musical instruments on Earth. The Tzolkin Trilogy showcases the primal sound of the didgeridoo as it has never before been heard, in three original compositions, based on the Mayan calendar. This unique sound has been shaped and developed into a form that can act as a tool for healing and spiritual awakening. Using the Traditional Chinese Medicine principle that degeneration in the physical body is caused by imbalance and functional disharmony within the energy system, the sound vibrations work to connect with the human body's natural energy vibrations, in order to rebalance and restore their functional harmony and imbue the listener with a renewed sense of lightness and freedom.

These soothing and pure sounds should be experienced by anyone interested in music as a therapeutic tool, and are especially effective for those suffering from emotional or mental stress, sleep problems and disorders of the nervous system, digestive organs or the heart.

Daniel Reid is a bestselling author and leading expert on Eastern philosophy and medicine. He is the author of numerous books including The Art and Alchemy of Chinese Tea, also published by Singing Dragon. He has studied in the United States, Taiwan and Thailand, and now lives in Byron Bay, Australia. Si Mullumby has dedicated his life to the playing of the didgeridoo. His career has spanned many countries and he has performed countless concerts and performances as well as taught workshops on didgeridoo playing. The Tzolkin Trilogy is the maturation of Si's playing. It is an exploration of the nourishing and healing aspect of the sound of this instrument. Si also lives in Byron Bay, Australia.
