Ben Kashi – The Musician Healer
Having discovered the healing power of music while navigating through a dark period of his life, Ben has developed his own unique style which he will share through performance and workshops.
Ben is also an accomplished musician who has performed at many state and interstate festivals, including numerous appearances at Woodford Folk Festival. Having discovered the healing power of music while navigating through a dark period of his life, he now regards music as his temple. Ben has developed his own style that allows the music to flow through him; which he sees as a divine communication whose immediacy and expression reach beyond the limits of language.
During his workshop, he will introduce and perform on the main instruments that he plays – the Santoor (hammered dulcimer), and a variety of percussion, all originating in Persia. The workshop will culminate in participants, whether musically adept or not, playing the instruments and under his direction creating their own unique music in the moment.
