Sika Sound Journey – Takaka, Golden Bay

September 17, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$20 – $25

Join Sika for a beautiful evening of inner enquiry using sound

New Moon… three days before Spring Equinox.

Sit or lie down in a purpose-built Octagonal space with amazing acoustics. Sika will play intuitively from his beloved collection of instruments, including several didgeridoos, drums, native flutes, rattles… foraged objects such as leaves, stones, bones and shells… and nature recordings from the Australian and New Zealand bush. The haunting ‘voices’ of unfamiliar instruments such as Aztec whistles and Māori Taonga pūoro add to the sense of mystery and help us enter meditative, wordless states.

Sika holds a safe space for us to drop into relaxation. Many people find the experience not only relaxing but deeply meaningful. Sika has been offering Sound Journeys for over 25 years and has the blessing of many Maori, Native American and Aboriginal elders, including the Yuin tribe of South Australia. He’s deeply humbled to share their instruments with people around the world.

What to bring?

Please bring a yoga mat, blanket, pillow or anything else you need to lie down comfortably. We also recommend a water bottle and a journal.

There will be two journeys with an interval in between.
Doors open 7.15pm. Please arrive ready to start at 7.30pm.


Please note that there is a limit on the number of people able to attend. It is highly recommended to buy advance tickets to guarantee your place.

Advance booking: $20
Contact Sika via Facebook messenger or email sikamusicinfo@gmail.com

Door sales: $25 – cash if there’s space.

Sound Journey CDs will also be available to buy on the night, cash only.

How to get there:

Riversea is located approx. 10 minutes’ drive from Takaka. From the SH60 turn into Patons Rock Road. Drive straight for approx 2km, before turning right onto Battery Road. Continue to the end of Battery Road, crossing a bridge, until you find a carpark to the right. The workshop is in the octagonal building nearby.

About COVID-19:
With the current move to level 2 here in the South Island, we are still safe to go ahead with this event.
