Spain Tour ends in new beginnings!
The Spanish Association JPJAL invited us to come to Spain for a course on communication with the Plant world and for a tour with our music. We were so exited as it was the first tour we were about to prepare in the conformation we are now. And a friend of ours from Japan planned to join us in Spain, Chiyo Baba, about which I will write more later, as she was a great part of our tour!
The gigs planned in Madrid and Toledo inspired us to expand our existing repertoire and we designed several new sounds to create a harmony that reminds us of landscapes, of jungle, or different species and creates a feeling of being able to float on the pleasantness of sound. Together with Tritone on Theremin and shakers, Benjamin on tablas and an always growing amount of new shakers, percussion instruments and basically anything that makes a sound, Zigola with her voice and Duclar and Kenneth, as a master of sound creation. The week before heading to Spain we played three short performances in the Open Temple of Damanhur as support act of a dance performance created by the Path of Art of Damanhur. That to us was a great synchronic collaboration as we had the opportunity to play our music for the people of Damanhur before our upcoming collaboration with the Damanhurian Association JPJAL. We are not a mere Damanhurian project since we include musicians from all backgrounds, together with a significant Damanhurian touch since Tritone and Zigola are Damanhurian citizens, including their knowledge and philosophy in this project that has for us a higher ideal, that of contributing to the union of humans and the plant world and inspiring people to rediscover this ancient bond we have already inside of us.
We have been living some weird syncronicity on our way to Spain, as Zigola wasn’t allowed to enter the plane cause of problems with documents. Apart from the personal discouragement, it all turned out to work very well anyway. We always speak of the fact we are a modular orchestra playing, including different musicians and the plants being the protagonists of our music. And we experienced in practice that we are indeed that. When we arrived in Spain we settled and started practicing with Chiyo Baba who, being a great singer and musician, added her creativity to our project and we transformed in a performance that appeared to be working very well too!
The Spanish television also did and interview with Beluga Posedonia, the organiser of the Tour and featured part of our concert in toledo. Click here to see it. Our feature begins at 51:10
Despite the opposition of losing our singer in the airport, the experience in spain was nothing less than magical. The spanish group who were organising had planned an amazing and very dense program of concerts for the band and exibitions of the music of the plants technology.
We were humbled by the hospitality and the effort put into the project from all the people involved and as we were experiencing the rush of being thrown into cars, it bagun to sink into our minds that we were only in the beginning of a great adventure. We had begun traversing a path which brought us closer to ourselves through the union of a harmonic group and we added a value to the spiritual life of people by representing and bringing the intrinsic connection to the plants world back into front of the minds of the people listening and therefore we had the privilige of experiencing moments of great harmony and help from existence itself in the form of events helping us out in the strangest and sometimes challenging situations.
The confirmation and positive response of the people was great and seeing the people coming to the concerts expressing a state of well being after the concert was a sign for us to continue developing this music and to plan an even greater tour next year, which leads us to the title of this blog.
We are spending the next couple of months planning the tour of 2019. So if you love plant connection and want to keep up with or in any way be part of this amazing project. Let us know, and help us by sharing the message of human and plant connection. We are different species living on the same planet and we as humans have a great remembering to do and maybe even some excuses to make towards the great race which have provided food and occygen for all the species of earth for millions of years. A bond between our races are being formed again and it is up to all of us to seek always a greater communion with the world that surrounds us.
