Concert of healing sounds on Aug. 26
A didjeridoo –"What's that?" you might ask. A didjeridoo is much more than a fun word to say. It is classified as an Australian Aboriginal wind instrument, more similar to a trumpet than a flute. Its shape takes the look of a long wooden tube, and most measure from three to 10 feet long. No two sound exactly alike. The longer the tube, the lower the pitch or tone. It has been said that both the player and the listener can experience a powerful trance from the sounds it produces.
A bowl that sings ... I don't have any of those in my kitchen. These types of bowls are really more like standing or decorative bells. Singing bowls sit with their bottom surface resting, often on a pillow or a cushion, the rim is stroked, then it vibrates to produce sounds. A singing bowl is special for it emits healing sounds that allows the soul to stretch and feel things it may not have felt before.
Combine the world's largest quartz didjeridoo and crystal singing bowls infused with citrine, platinum, diamond and more, and you have the recipe for a truly unique sound healing experience. Bring together Paradiso, a master didjeridoo artist, and Rasamayi, a vocalist and master artist of the singing bowls, and you have a celestial soundscape with unlimited potentiality. Their audiences have reported and experienced profound meditative states, and intense healings of emotional, physical and spiritual pain. The didjeridoo, singing bowls and voice work weave a powerful and sacred soundscape. Like the artist whose painting means different things to different individuals, these soundscapes create visions of interpersonal transformations in each listener.
