Inner Landscapes Concert with Laura Inserra and The Murmurations Duo

December 10, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Samavesha presents

Inner Landscapes Concert with Laura Inserra and The Murmurations Duo

As part of the Rose Labyrinth Series

Inner Landscapes is a musical immersion that invites you into your inner visions, moods, emotional states… in other words, an inspiration to relax into your precious ‘presence’ through heedful listening. This project is a development of Laura Inserra’s work around the transmutational power of music. Laura collaborates with musicians that have a similar ritualistic and experiential approach to music, and this time she is joined by The Murmurations Duo composed of Suellen Primost (cello) and Jérémy Marais (saxophones and percussion). Laura Inserra and The Murmurations Duo will transport you to your infinite Inner Landscapes through the journey of silence, sounds, rhythms, melodies, and harmonies… 

We’ll host a ‘Meet the Artist’s Vision’ at 7:15pm to introduce the concert and a Q&A at the end to integrate the experience. Bring pillows and blankets if you want to lay down and completely surrender to the experience. The room will be set up in a way to fully and comfortably immerse oneself into the journey. We look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Online ticket sale ends at few hours before the concert. Tickets will still be available at the door at an extra charge. Invite your friends on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/1761993464061172
