Wednesday 14 June
Doors open at 7.00pm for a prompt start at 7.30pm.
Sound Journey runs from 7.30pm – 9.30pm, with a short rest break halfway through.
Featuring didgeridoos, hoop drum, taos drum, flutes, shells, stones, leaves and orchestral elements. Sika’s voice and breath also play a vital role in this elemental exploration.
As we will listen to the ancient sounds of Sika’s instruments, absorb his healing sound, we will be transported through layers of different dimensions to reconnect and reconvene with the truth of our being.
Please bring a yoga mat, blanket and cushion to lie or sit on.
The ‘Singing Stones’ Tour is the first time Sika has played in the UK for over 3 years.
‘A matrix of sound stripped of the last three thousand years. Unintrusive, gently visceral, humorous, masterful, spacious!’
‘Sika is a truly remarkable being. His music takes you to the depths of the universe and time itself.’
‘His energy, musicianship, spiritual attunement and love are all wrapped together. He gifts to his audiences amazing journeys. Just go – and be bathed!’
Sika is a sound artist based in New Zealand, dedicated to creating music and paintings that enhance our spiritual relationship with nature.
“A walker between the worlds of human nature and Mother nature.”
He has toured internationally since 1993, offering sound journeys and concerts.
The didgeridoo forms an important foundation for his music, however he also uses drums, native flutes, voice and a broad selection of ancient natural instruments.
Giving voice to wood, skin, bone, stone and shell, his work reflects a lifetime of listening to the rhythms of nature. Other sources of sound such as water, fire, trees, animals and wind are used with the ultimate intention to build soundscapes that enable us to leave time
After years of gathering and making instruments, Sika has recorded ten solo albums.
As a collection these projects tell the story of a man who has followed his yearning to create a life grown from the roots of the past, but sowing the seeds of the future.
