Tafari Stevenson-Howard/Chief Jakada is a Detroit, Michigan-based sound meditation facilitator.
Introduced to the world of sound healing by indigenous practitioners while visiting the Brazilian rainforest, Tafari was ignited with passion through this ancient healing medium.
Over the years, Tafari practiced various forms of meditation and yoga practices. When he was introduced to the use of sound vibration as a vehicle for well-being and balance, Tafari began sharing the practice of sound meditation with his community as a way to assist people to become more present and to foster relaxation in the mind and body by implementing sound centering tools.
In addition to Tafari’s passion for sound meditation, he is a crowned Hausa tribal chief in Nima-Accra, Ghana, an avid world traveler, and an award-winning visual artist and interpreter who has been telling stories through photography for well over a decade.
