Dream Seed is a sound healing ensemble created by members of Golden Drum, Sacred Arts Research Foundation, and Didge Project. Shamanic chanting, mantras, overtone singing, Native American songs, indigenous music, didgeridoos, crystal singing bowls, bells, gongs, harmoniums, tuning forks and other overtone-emitting instruments are used to create an environment conducive to deep relaxation and inward investigation.

*** We ask that everyone please be respectful and arrive on time. Doors close at 7:45 promptly.
Members of Dream Seed are active organizers of the Golden Drum and the Sacred Arts Research Foundation communities. They are students of Maestro Manuel Rufino, a recognized Taino elder, spiritual guide and ceremonial leader. With his blessing, Dream Seed was created as a vehicle with which to share the music of sacred traditions of the world.
Their affiliations include Made in Prayer, Jungle Cafe and Didge Project.
They have spent over 7 years in a deep study in Brooklyn, NY cultivating their art, music and programs through their practices and disciplines.
A visionary musician who, with voice and ancient Afrikan instruments, channels sound as a universal healing force. Together, breathing rhythms to the beat of our synchronized hearts, Kevin Nathaniel resonates songs of unity and the “big picture” of love in the grooviest ways possible! A long-time devotee of mbira, kalimba, polyphonic circle singing, drum, dance, meditation, and yoga; a world-traveled music healer sharing the musical medicine of the ancient, the now, and the beyond, Kevin Nathaniel brings a fresh, deep experience of the beauty of sound.
Kevin Nathaniel’s music is an invitation for all to come together, to share in song, laughter, positivity, movement, prayer, and breath.
