Sedona artist Three Trees brings Global Indigenous Music to Studio Live on Saturday, May 26, at Studio Live.
Doors open at 7 p.m. with show starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
Three Trees is known for taking his audiences on journeys of the soul through the beat of African rhythms and melodies of the middle-eastern gypsies.
Using traditional instruments and a layering of live looping he creates a global ensemble before your eyes. Three Trees played in several music projects and styles till finding his passion in world music.
In search of his spiritual path he gravitated towards the healing powers of the drum and began to explore the healing hidden within rhythm, melody, and sacred chants.
Nine years ago, he found his home in Sedona where he offers private and group lessons, sound healing sessions, performances,ceremony, and conferences and retreats as a workshop facilitator.
Three Trees also hand crafts flutes, drums and didjeridoos. His art reaches past the music realm; as the protoge of internationally acclaimed local sculpture John Soderberg. Three Trees is currently creating a bronze sculpture depicting an African shamanic healing.
Joining Three Trees for this enchanting evening, from Boulder, Colo., is Ariana Saraha -- songstress, shamaness of sound. At once earthy and ethereal, Ariana's lush voice and exquisite compositions take the listener on a mystical and soulful journey.
Most often compared to Celtic singer Loreena McKennitt, Ariana is a spellbinding artist, escorting audiences into realms untouched by the day-to-day. The exotic fusion of sounds that inspire her music draw upon her gypsy roots, traditional music of India and the Middle-East, and Celtic and Spanish flavorings.
Through her entrancing melodies, sultry grooves, and compelling lyricism, Ariana becomes a siren for the soulfully seeking. She does so in the most enchanting way, through the uncommon passion and lush purity of her angelic voice.
The evening will take you on a sacred journey of music and insight. Ariana and Three Trees will present instruments from indigenous cultures around the world; Three Trees will also feature the rare melodic drum called a Halo.
This ethereal sounding instrument can transport it's listeners. Come join them in this collaboration of a blend of traditional and "now" age music, that will lift your spirits while opening your heart, setting the mood for the exploration of your soul.
An evening of musical innovation that will persuade you to explore the healing hidden within rhythm, melody and sacred verse ...
