Following his highly successful musical career of national, international touring, and recording as lead percussionist in the bands of high-profile vocalists including Al Jarreau, Anita Baker, Dianne Reeves, Rickie Lee Jones, and Erykah Badu, and being a key musician in the rhythm sections of bands including those of Grover Washington Jr., Bob James, Wyclef Jean and many others.
Master drummer and percussionist Baba Doc Gibbs heard a new rhythm. New directions called to Baba Doc, and he combined his multitude of experiences into a program of healing groups and individuals through sound. This was an easy and natural transition for him.
Realizing more and more the importance of healing with sound, Baba Doc created the Healing Sound Bath, using a variety of percussion instruments, each with a unique voice and energy to create an experience that promotes relaxation, stress relief, healing, breathing, and balances both hemispheres of the brain.
Participants experience the soothing energy of gongs, cymbals, and meditation bells. Baba Doc provides additional colors and feelings to the experience as he plays his ocean drum, rain stick, kamale ngoni, the hand pan among other instruments.
Baba Doc’s Healing Sound Bath provides relief from daily stress, and provides deep relaxation. It releases negative energy and emotions, helps reconnect mind, body and spirit, and assist in recovery after illness.

Sound Therapy is another modality for healing, by using various percussion instruments to relax and reconnect mind, body, and spirit as one.
Because of my experience as a master percussionist, I think in terms of using instruments to create sounds of the universe. Sounds like the ocean, the wind and rain, in addition to sound bowls, hand pan and kamale ngoni, which are melodic instruments, all are used to promote healing and mindfulness.
Healing Sound Therapy is music that soothes the soul & awakens the calm in us.
My instruments create positive uplifting vibrations, relieving stress, and taking you to a peaceful, relaxed place in your mind.
