Among the !Kung San people from the northwestern
Kalahari Desert region, music helps a spiritual healer enter into a
religious trance (!kia)). Men and women chant, sing, clap
rhythmically and drum; and when the music "heats up" enough to send a
healer into the realm between human and spirit worlds, all who attend
the dance are healed of their illnesses. Recorded between 1968 and 1972
by American anthropologists.
