Black Mountain Circle SONG CIRCLE

SOLD OUT

MaMuse hosts an evening of singing together in circle, on the night before our first pilgrimage walk in Point Reyes National Seashore (see seasonal pilgrimages). The intention is to be together, weaving voices and connecting hearts. The menu of songs will include a range of simple rounds, four-part harmonies from Mamuse's original repertoire, and songs written by other fellow song carriers. We sing on themes of Joy, Gratitude and Grief—diving into the depths of life and lifting each other up in service to the well-being of all. Please join us to welcome in the waters of our emotions and sing to the waters that all eventually find their way to the ocean. Every voice is welcome and no prior singing experience is required.

Living Village Culture & Jumpsuit Records proudly present: Chemistry: An afternoon and evening event to amplify the heart

Facebook / Tickets: https://www.facebook.com/events/332450260907223/

You are cordially invited to Chemistry, an afternoon and evening to amplify the heart. Come with love, come find love, come be loved, come be love. This is a community event woven together through the intention and heart of many local businesses & artisans. Please scroll through the event description to see all of the amazing booths, artists, and offerings.

The Polish Ambassador
www.thepolishambassador.com
The Polish Ambassador (real name David Sugalski) is raising the bar for what it means to be a professionally touring musician. Sure, the electronic musician lays claim to producing the sweetest beats this side of the Milky Way Galaxy, but the world’s funkiest diplomat is also using his popularity to steer the millennial generation toward a nourishing and sustainable way of relating with art, community and the planet. From birthing the Permaculture Action Movement (a movement where the energy of show/festival goers is catalyzed into community action), to launching a Village Building Convergence in his hometown to creating a program where nutritious beverage options are available at music venues on a routed TPA tour, the ambassador is using his clout to make real, tangible change, and along the way inspiring hundreds of thousands.

Wildlight
www.wearewildlight.com
Wildlight is the space between the notes, the earth’s undulating pulse, the modern echoes of ancient rhythms. It is a sound that will spark your body into motion and swing your soul into flight. An unlikely pairing of a folk songwriter and an electronic music composer has yielded a new sound; music that gracefully traverses human emotions, but can also jumpstart a party into a syncopated bounce.

_______

MaMuse
www.mamuse.org
Wholeheartedly fed by the folk and gospel traditions, MaMuse (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker) create uplifting music for the pure joy of it and to inspire the world into thriving. Interweaving brilliant and haunting harmony with lyrics born of honed emotional intelligence, MaMuse invokes a musical presence that inspires the opening of the heart. Playing a family of varied acoustic instruments including upright bass, guitar, mandolins, ukulele, and flutes, and backed by inspired drummer (Mike Wofchuck) these two powerful women embody a love for all of life. The synergy that is created through this musical connection is palpable and truly moving to witness.

_______

Marie Sioux
www.mariesioux.bandcamp.com
Mariee Sioux was raised in Northern California and is of Indigenous and Polish Hungarianancestry. She prefers to be known as an abstract storyteller and a voice for the natural world and trials of humanity through song. She’s been given gifts of songs for over 10 years. Her songs
have been described as medicinal, hallucinatory, and haunting, with a trance like performance.

This special shared evening brings together two uplifting bands, both of whom will nourish you in spirit and body. MaMuse will play a stirring set of folk/gospel/harmony inspiration, then Fula Brothers will light the dancefloor with a West African-California Groove experience. Expect a full heart, a lively community of dancers, and collaborative magic when the bands play together.

MaMuse :

With deep roots in the folk and gospel traditions, and their hearts in the present, MaMuse (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker) create uplifting music for the next seven generations to thrive on. Interweaving brilliant and haunting harmony with lyrics born of honed emotional intelligence, MaMuse invokes a musical presence that inspires the opening of the heart. Playing a family of varied acoustic instruments including upright bass, guitar, mandolins, ukulele, and flutes, these two powerful women embody a love for all of life. The synergy that is created through this musical connection is palpable and truly moving to witness.

Fula Brothers :

Malian hunters harp player Mamadou Sidibe, guitarist Walter Strauss, drummer Kendrick Freeman

Fula Brothers is the high spirited meeting of three seasoned touring performers – each of whom has spent decades pursuing the shared heartbeat in music from around the globe. Here is a history filled with inter-continental collaborations and colorful apprenticeships, from West Africa and Scotland to Haiti and the US. Mamadou, Walter, and Kendrick weave together West African hunters harp, fingerstyle guitar, drums, vocals, and a bounty of improvisation to create an ecstatic groove-based dialogue, which the heart – and the feet – cannot resist.
