Greg Ellis: The Rhythmatist, featured on TheVibe Original Feature

With their mission to create and curate creative lifestyle narratives, TheVibe inspires its audiences to live authentically. TheVibe brings passionate freethinkers, artistes, and talents together on a common platform and produces experiential properties, while promoting their passion causes.

In early 2020 just before the global lockdown, Greg spent a couple of very busy months playing drums at festivals, workshops and other events in Kolkata, Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Goa. TheVibe caught up with him and created this comprehensive Original Feature, The Rhythmatist, compellingly written by Anchal Goil.


Dissolve the mind’s divisions of Self

You are invited to be part of an unscientific yet meaningful aesthetic experiment intended to discern what percentage of the human experience embodies primal gnosis.

For our purposes at this particular moment in time and space, let us agree to understand ‘primal gnosis’ as fundamental and experiential knowing.

Through his work with some of the most realized Rhythmatists in the world, Master drummer and musician Greg Ellis has acquired a profound knowledge and awareness of rhythms and their effects on one’s physical and metaphysical being.

Harnessing his vast collection of drums, gongs, and bowls, he creates powerful resonant frequencies that become a vehicle for transcending form. His instruments and style of playing balance masculine and feminine principles, mapping a space for pure being, where one releases the conditioned need to identify with mind and embraces the primacy of formless-ness. His rhythms, always organic and improvised, become a truly sustainable fuel source for generating energy.

YOU are welcome to join this transformance, a psyche-sonic journey we call RhythmTRAnce, exploring the felt presence of immediate experience.’ (phrase coined by Terence McKenna)
