MUSIC AS HEALER
For millions of years music has played an important part in
Mother Earths' evolution. It is always there - in the early morning birdsong, the rush of a mountain creek, the ceaseless roar of the ocean. In the way that the atmosphere changes around two people in love, in the way that a newborn baby fills the hearts of those honoured to be there as witnesses to the new life.
Whether you enjoy your music loud, gentle, smooth, rough, rock or roll, there's one thing that will always remain as common ground:
Music is for EVERYONE, not just those who land record deals, fill stadiums or win Idol. It doesn't care about your skin colour, gender or religious beliefs. It doesn't care if you have a million dollars or ten cents. And it doesn't take a million dollars or ten cents to
A gift from the Gods, able to unite a dissatisfied, angry crowd in a powerful chanelled release or weave a hypnotic, sensual trance over a chai filled festival crowd. It doesn't matter if you can or cannot carry a tune, bang a drum or compose symphonies.
The Spirit of music
has no rules.
In the immortal words of
The Village People:
"No, you can't stop the music,
nobody can stop the music.
Take the spark from love,
make the rain fall up,
'cause that's easier to do."
Madonna (Greatest Hits Volume 2)
