Instructors: Moziah Brantley was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. His primary instrument is the drum set and he learned African drumming while in Nashville, Tennessee in 1988 where he attended workshops and studied with the great Babatunde Olatunji. Moziah was able to journey through a successful career in music which led to a Grammy-winning percussion performance on "Handel's Messiah: A Soulful Celebration" produced by the legendary Quincy Jones. Moziah says that music is meaningful because of the way it moves the spirit of people when they participate in it. He believes it is a spiritual process that awakens the ancestors and allows him to then honor them. Read more about the instructors at Beyond the Natural.
