Put simply, Humm- Drum wishes to serve, through music. We are in the process of registering an NGO (non- profit) to do the same.
Our work is focused on working with at-risk children and youth. We’ve found that most kids respond very well to an integrated therapeutic approach to deal with the difficult emotions, that result from painful pasts and a hard life.
We are focused on providing mental and emotional health services to these populations.
In the west, Rhythm Therapy has been used very effectively with PTSD and Trauma.
We too, find music and rhythm therapy to be very effective.
We’ve also been pleased with the response of the kids to Sound Healing sessions in promoting relaxation and release.
However, in our work we also realized that in order for these therapies to have a long term impact on the kids we work with, they need to have access to affordable musical instruments.
We needed to set up musical instrument libraries.
But we found that instruments available in the market are often difficult to source and very expensive. Also, instruments are not ergonomically designed bearing in mind the child or the beginner musician.
This gap, has inspired us to partner with musicians and musical instrument makers to prototype, and produce musical instruments.
