Like many musician Ron Bracale sought out some great teachers early in his career. He had the fortune of studying with Bob Ledner, a great Jazz Flutist. He then was privileged to study with Montino Bourbon, who is a sarod master, who conveyed to Ron the essence of North Indian Ragas. Finally Ron spent some time studying with the Jazz great, Earnie Krivda Jr. in order to complete his understanding of the possibilities in composition and arrangement. What sets Ron apart is that he began seriously meditating at age thirteen. Putting his spiritual search before all else, he unraveled many of the world's great traditions. In addition to Meditation, Yoga, and spiritual journeying, Ron has studied Qi Gong from several great teachers. Ron reconnected with his natural and spiritual self and continues to walk the path as a being of conscious unity based in love. All these practices combine to produce a music that has the essence of healing the life energy: thus this album Healer's Songs is a great tool for those who seek healing and those who do the healing work and live radiant lives.
