What you'll do
You are invited to “Journey of the Soul” - the perfect marriage of ecstatic poetry with exquisite sound tapestries. You will be taken on a transcendental journey, bathed in poetry by beloved poets - Rumi, Hafiz, Mary Oliver and others. Poems will be shared in English, Farsi, Hindi by multilingual poets. You will get a flavor of native language sounds as well as accompanying translations in English. You will be transported by waves of divinely inspired soundscapes from The Murmurations Duo (Jérémy Marais and Suellen Primost on cello, clarinet, saxophone, frame drum, kalimba, shruti, tuning forks, chimes, glockenspiel, Tibetan singing bowls and blossom bells.) Suellen Primost, a seasoned, conservatory trained cellist, recording artist, and sound healer, is known for her soulful expressivity and versatility across genres ranging from classical and jazz to many types of world music: Celtic, Middle Eastern, Balkan, Indian Classical and Ambient. Jérémy Marais, born and raised in the French Alps, started to study saxophone as a kid and developed a strong interest in improvised music. He has been living and studying traditional music in West Africa, Spain, India, Turkey, and Israel.
A few years ago, my love and passion for world poetry led me to start a poetry meet-up group, which has now grown and evolved into "Kaavya Connections" (Kaavya is Sanskrit for poetry). We organize monthly poetry gatherings and work with artists, writers on collaborative projects to create shows and events that bring unique poetry, literature, sound, music, and spiritual experiences. Our group has 350 members, 5 organizers and has done 50+ monthly gatherings, 2 Sufi Qawwali music productions, and the Journey of the Soul show.
