March Baltimore Drum Church

dchurch

Drum Church is a live, group experience, where the drum serves as a vehicle to connect with the divine spirit that is inside each and everyone of us. Our Gatherings offer an opportunity to think, meditate or even pray in your own way, while riding a rhythm wave to awaken a spiritual connection. Drum church is not a “drum circle“, but a guided, communal drumming experience. All we ask is for you to bring your sense of wonderment and a drum. When possible, please bring a yoga mat, cushion or fold-up chair. Drums will be made available, on a first come/first serve basis, for those who desire to drum.

Feather Woman Premiere this Friday

11/4/16 – Feather Woman Premiere at Firehouse Arts & Music

Feather Woman” is both music video and short film, its series of vignettes and tableaus depicting scenes that reach from antiquity to modernity, all crystallizing around the theme of time and death and their affect on one’s love. Voodoo Pharmacology plays out a sonorous musical illustration whose lyrics narrate a longing for transformation.

Filmed in the context of both vast landscapes and intimate spaces, the sensitive cinematography creates a visually enchanting, fantastic realm, that reaching out conducts the viewer through a celebration of the elements.

the premiere will feature the musical performances of:
Voodoo Pharmacology
and
A Path Untold

projections:
Jeremy Opio

bellydancer Farida Shourbaji

performance art by
Heather joi and Erik Yount
