Concert: Wild Up Presents Odeya Nini Dec 15, 7pm
Wild Up is presenting a winter concert series called darkness sounding this December and January, featuring music and gatherings to celebrate and come together during the darkest time of the year. For the series, Chris Rountree has planned for four “satsangs.” This one will be led by Odeya Nini and it will be a sound bath.
*Audience members will lie on the ground and are encouraged to bring a mat or blanket
Four Satsangs (spiritual discourses) spread on different weeks, spanning the duration of the series, in which singer / composer Odeya Nini and artistic director Christopher Rountree lead discussions, group sings, sound baths, and readings around the topics of community, endeavoring, history, darkness, and ritual. Join us for these participatory gatherings.
A total sound immersion in the healing power of the human voice. Open your body, heart and mind as you journey in meditation to the healing sound waves of changing vibration, dynamic tone, melody, emotion and the powerful resonance of the voice. The voice will be accompanied by the celestial drones of Himalayan singing bowls, crystal bowls, gong and chime. Satsang 1 – Nini | Voice Bath is part of Wild Up’s darkness sounding winter concert series.
About darkness sounding
What is it about the end of the year? It’s dark already, our clocks have jumped. And even in LA nights seem to overtake the days. Pagan and sacred holidays abound: rituals collecting themselves around the darkness. We’re hungry for something new, for something wrapped and warm, yet we search for a newness unbounded by the trappings of the past. In December 2019 and January 2020 Wild Up embarks on a new venture, a series set against the darkest days of the year. We make mindful, joyful and maybe melancholic music, endeavoring to drone sounds of the earth. The sounds of community being drawn together in contemplation.
