Murray Kyle – Live Performance
Wednesday, July 31, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM (PDT)
Join us for a night of powerful heart healing, Earth honoring medicine songs from Australian Murray Kyle and former long time Sonoma County resident Leora Love, opening with a shamanic sound journey by Bodhi.
Murray Kyle has emerged as a highly respected musician in the Australian roots music scene, and is based in the tiny town of Uki in Northern NSW, a creative epicentre of valleys and mountains. His music honors the connection we all share as humanity, carrying a conscious message for these changing times and inspiring joy and positive awareness into the listener.
A multi-instrumentalist, Kyle’s song writing inspiration developed as he travelled the world, and added guitar, yidaki, woodwinds and percussion to his trained piano skills. From festival stages to intimate events, Kyle’s music connects and uplifts; his performances are a soundscape of passionate storytelling. Kyle’s magical sounds have graced the stages of major Australian festival including Peats Ridge, Woodford Folk Festival, Island Vibe, Rainbow Serpent and Exodus, as well as international events in California, Hawaii, the UK and Bali.
Now living in Chico, Leora has performed at many benefit concerts and rallies for forest protection and animal rights organizations, Earth Day events, The Harmony Festival, and at the Sonoma County Music Association’s Women’s Music Showcase. Leora’s uplifting songs grow out of her roots as a social and environmental activist and healer. Her lyrics reflect her commitment to planetary stewardship and personal awakening, while her melodies transport you more deeply into yourself, reminding you of your own unity with all life.
Bodhi, joining us from Marin County, will lead a Shamanic Sound Journey. He is a multi-talented musician, songwriter, composer, recording artist & producer. His CD, TRANS UKRAINE was the #1 Ambient Album of the year for 2006. He has recorded 13 albums of original music and is currently the music director for the “Golden Gate Center for Spiritual Living” in Marin County, California. At home on flute, piano, guitar, conch shell or turning an affirmation into a chant, Bodhi brings a genuine lightness of being to every concert and workshop setting.
