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

sos-fam-page-001

“When a musician works with sound, it is as if he or she were placing an ear on the heart of nature. The musician perceives the will of nature and the cosmos and gives it back in a melody…

The art of healing is resonance between higher self and body. This resonance initiates recognition understanding, knowledge, restoration, recentering, and finally healing…
Love, music, and nature offer the most sublime and uplifting possibilities of resonance…to greater aspects of ourselves.”
-Fabien Maman

Participants are immersed in a deeply relaxing and transformative soundscape. This rich field of vibrations can act as a potent catalyst for:

-Stress relief
-Deep relaxation & centeredness
-Emotional release & clarity
-Physical pain relief & healing
-Chakra & energy system balancing/activation
-Personal insight, transcendental awareness, & spiritual connection

Using chant, overtone singing, didgeridoo, shamanic drumming, crystal singing bowls, shruti box, hang drum, flute, tambura, and other elemental textures, Jim Thomas (acupuncturist and musician), Paul Thomas (sound healer and musician), Pitz Quattrone (didgeridoo teacher, performer, and builder), and David Powell (musician) create together a powerful inner experience guided by sound and rhythm.

Orchester Prazevica (Gypsy Jazz)

orchester3

orchester

Resistance is futile, this is Turbo Folk! High energy dance music drawing on the tradition of Eastern European Czardas and Gypsy Swing, but widely influenced by jazz and blues. Under the direction of Slovak born and raised guitarist and singer Tomáš Drgoň, this band delivers an honest, authentic and entertaining mix of folklore, jazz and dance music suitable for everything from upscale clubs to dives, jazz festivals to mosh pits, arts receptions to underground galleries. Orchester Praževica has performed at several prestigious stages including the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington DC, the Patterson Theater in Baltimore and the Drom in NYC. They have shared the stage with the Hungarian Gypsy folk supergroup Parno Graszt, the Romanian Gypsy brass legends Fanfare Ciocarlia, Boban and Marko Markovic Orchestra, and other greats on the “not so mainstream” music scene.

Theory of Everything (funk rock)

theory

“Theory” is a new Baltimore band featuring bassist Lyle John Saunders, who performed at previous FAM events, and members: Aleka FarOut on vocals, Brian Shapiro on trumpet,  Andre Grant on trombone Will Crowther on guitar and Jason Cohen on drums.

Phil Celeste (R&B)

phil1

Phill Celeste practices musical alchemy, melting down a number of musical elements into a sound that is eclectic and varied, drawing from disco, funk, house, r&b, soul and jazz. Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, his special blend of sound has been described as dark, sexy and abstract: a unique and modern twist on sounds both classic and strange.

Lindsey Golden (Dance Performance)

9/24 ~ Baltimore Drum Church

FREE to Attend Donations Welcome

September 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

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. Chairs and drums will be made available, on a first come/first serve basis.
