Back by popular demand, The Elements are soon making their second appearance at the Berkeley Rose Labyrinth for an all-improvised concert and ritual to mark the turning of the season. This is music healing, rhythm journey, participatory song, and uplifting improvisational beauty all wrapped up in one. More details below…

TheElements_130926Join these 5 dynamic vocalists for an evening of richly-textured a cappella singing in The Rose Labyrinth on Thursday, September 26th from 7:30 to 9pm (doors open at 7pm).

Come to listen, come to sing, come to walk the ritual path with an organic human soundtrack to aid your self-discovery.

It’s $15/chair or $25/couch at the door (if available), but this event will likely sell out. Proceeds benefit Samavesha (501c3) as well as these healing sound artists.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Shay Nichols sings in a style all her own, and loves helping people experience the beauty and power of their voice. Her
work blends the freedom of improvisation with the wisdom of sound healing traditions to encourage well being and transformation.

Green Huse has many miles of touring under her feet, and is now lovingly rooted in family life in Berkeley. She sings with all she’s got and improv is her mother tongue.

Briony Greenhill is freedom and acceptance given voice! She also founded the London Vocal Improv Collective and has studied with Bobby McFerrin & Rhiannon.

Sam Rogers (aka The One Mouth Band) has crisscrossed the globe as a solo a cappella act, TaKeTiNa Rhythm Facilitator, & CircleSong Leader. Formerly of SoVoSo and the theater/vocal group Improvox, he loves getting to sing with people of all levels.

German-born Christopher Kuntzsch elegantly combines mastery with the child-like playfulness of the beginner’s mind. Raised by an opera singer and orchestra conductor, his recent vocal explorations have included circlesong play with Bobby McFerrin, the joys of tight barbershop harmonies, launching a looping-based a capella duo, and providing musical care for the dying. At its core, his music seeks to open the deeper realms of the heart.
