Song of the Babaylan
Grace Nono's Song of the Babaylan: Living Voices, Medicines, Spiritualities of Philippine Ritualist-Oralist-Healers is a pioneering interdisciplinary study of the world of healers in the Philippines and all the sounds and beliefs that it holds. It retrieves and reclaims ancient indigenous healing sounds that have been passed on from generation to generation through the present and remaining babaylan - the ritualists, oralists, and healers from various ethno-linguistic groups across the Philippines.
