Ayni Projects and Concerts at the Farm Present

Ian Dogole & René Jenkins

with Special Guest Rafael Meza

Sacred Spaces and Wild Places

Saturday Evening, July 9
7:00 pm – Doors Open / 8:00 pm – Concert

Two adventurous musical spirits who delight in the here and now. Over the last few years, Global Fusion Music recording artist and multipercussionist Ian Dogole (www.iandogole.com) and master multi-instrumentalist and sound healer René Jenkins (www.vibetherapy.org) have developed a symbiotic chemistry that knows no bounds. Their musical forays are deeply rooted in the ancestral indigenous music cultures of the Americas, Africa and beyond and when combined with their irrepressible spirit of adventure, the result is a sonic feast for the senses and an uplifting, healing experience that is transformational.

On Saturday evening, July 9th, Ian and René will once again unite their talents and musical worldviews in the warm and welcoming Munay Farm sanctuary. If you were in attendance last year at René’s Weya CD Release Concert or at the performance featuring Peruvian multi-instrumentalist/shaman Tito La Rosa, you already know how compelling and entrancing these musicians are. And we have a delightful treat at the conclusion of this performance, when the charming and lyrical Rafael Meza will regale us with his guitar and voice (with Ian and René accompanying) on a few “huayños,” (or “wayñus” in Quechua), a highly popular musical form that originated in the Andean highlands. The huayño is believed to have developed during colonial Peruvian times (mid-1500s). This music is sure to send everyone home with a smile on their face and a bounce in their step.

Feel free to arrive up to an hour before the show so that you can commune with one another before getting comfortable in our lovely sound temple. Adult beverages will be available for purchase prior to the concert. And when the concert is over, you can go sit by the pond and if the frogs are in just the right mood, they might sing for you.

  • Ian Dogole – udu, kalimbas, hang, doumbek, talking drum, cajon, bells and shakers

Ayni Projects Honors Ancient Culture

Paylla! Gracias! Thank you! Obrigado! Arigato! Tak Sumiki! Merci! Grazie for coming home to Ayni Projects

Ayni Projects is dedicated to participating in the development of healthy communities by working with local leaders (in the Americas) to co-create and implement initiatives that include all members of the community in a reciprocal way whereby people give what they have to offer, and receive what they need in return. It is the belief of Ayni Projects that in this way everyone becomes invested in the well-being of the whole community as the act of social reciprocity is synonymous with this well-being.

We continue to invite you to be a part of our schools and our model health care clinic that serves over 3,000 indigenous people in the Central Peruvian Andes.
