In its simplest description, Cantoria is a Musical Project of Peace, discovering and sharing all of humanity’s universal bonds through ancient texts and melodies celebrating our kindred compassion; and through the energy exchange centres found on every human body—our chakras.
The journey begins with the essence of our physical being: Water; then moves into the pure vibrational energy of a Tibetan singing bowl and the sound of a tingsha which helps us centre our being in this present moment. Strings enter with a full harmonic array of sounds and emotions... and we venture into the first blessing singing of our Source, our Essence, our true Beauty. The first Chakra, Muladhara, is opening...
Travelling through all seven chakras, with musical interludes in-between, we follow our journey into the ultimate awareness and presence of the true glory of this moment, the effusion of all the Love & Wisdom we have felt and shared along the way. Here, at the seventh chakra, Sahasrara, we feel the union of our Sacred Self with All that Is; the truth of our Oneness, and our Universal beauty is symbolized by a 1,000 petal lotus flower in full blossom.
The musical instruments fade, the singing bowl returns, the tingsha sounds and we return to our essence once again, now with the knowledge and peaceful calm of who we truly are: Pure Love.
