"Dragonfly" is a presentation of Miranda Rondeau's unique expression with the frame drum and a tribute to the rich history, tradition, and lineage of women frame drum players.
Her chanting is a spontaneous form of intuitive intoning that transcends literal language, bypasses the intellect, is devotional and invoking in nature.
Dragonfly appears as part of the LuvSongs album, a collection of songs from the LuvAmp project's artists collective. Check out or support the album here: http://www.indiegogo.com/LuvSongs?a=1...

Miranda says, "Dragonfly is a symbol of transformation, a song of remembrance, the language of the heart.....
...Finding the frame drum has been a Divine HOMECOMING. It is the sound of my ancient heart, the HeartBeat of the Mother. It is the sound of the rhythms of Life, of seasons and cycles.
It is the Sun, the Moon, the Earth, the Cosmic Egg. It is the first sound we ever hear in our Mothers WOMB, our sacred time of ONENESS. It is my tool of Remembrance, of devotion, of transmission, of transportation, and inner expression. It is my tool of creating sacred space, of invoking, of cleansing, of celebrating, communicating and activating. It is my form of prayer."

The frame drum is one of the oldest archetypal instruments on the planet. In ancient times of the Mediterranean area, the predominant players were women. They were priestesses responsible for the religious functions of the community.
It was used to create sacred space, communal bonding, rituals, rites of passage and to celebrate the cycles and seasons of life. It was used to invoke, induce trance and alter consciousness.
You can learn more about the history from Layne Redmonds book
