with

Matt Venuti & Ian Dogole
Special Guest Robert M. Powell

Saturday Evening, April 16
7:00 pm (Pre-concert Culinary Treats) / 8:00 pm Concert

Ayni Projects is happy to announce the return of the Concerts at the Farm series on Saturday evening, April 16th. Ailish Schutz, Ayni Projects founder and Ian Dogole (www.iandogole.com), musical director, invite you to the Munay Farm sanctuary to experience the captivating contemporary melodic percussion instrument from Switzerland called the Hang.

Joining Ian in this unique musical collaboration is one of the world’s most prolific Hang music performers – Matt Venuti (www.mattvenuti.com). Together, they will take you on a musical adventure that features several generations of the Hang and two new PANArt instruments called the Tubal and Hang® Gudu (among the first ever in the U.S.). Ian’s instrumental compositions and Matt’s heart-inspired vocal songs will be among a diverse range of musical settings, which will include both ensemble and solo performances. For added depth and color, Ian and Matt have solicited the stellar talents of Robert M. Powell (www.robertpowellmusic.com), a virtuoso performer on guitars of all types, as well as a highly acclaimed composer and producer.

If you’ve ever heard the entrancing sounds of the Hang, you already know how uplifting and transporting this wondrous instrument can be. If you are new to this instrument, get ready for a transformational experience.

As is customary at our concerts, the evening will commence with some tasty snacks, sweets and libations and opportunities for all of you to commune with one another before getting comfortable in our lovely sound temple where we can take in the spring evening with the intoxicating sounds of the PANArt sound sculptures.

And when the concert is over, you can go sit by the pond and if the frogs are in just the right mood, they will sing for you.

We look forward to seeing you at the Farm!

Proceeds from this concert will go to support the Chaupin School in Carhuaz, Peru.

Matt Venuti

Composer, performer and masterful instrumentalist Matt Venuti tours 10 months out of the year singing his original compositions while accompanying himself on the Swiss-made Hang and Gubal; innovative new instruments made famous through the internet but extremely rare to encounter live. The sounds from these instruments have the potential to impart a powerful and positive effect on the listener, and Matt is a gifted player who takes his audiences on a melodic and rhythmic journey while singing songs that “open the heart, quiet the mind, and touch the soul”. It’s a magical experience that is at once contemplative, energizing enchanting and fun! Matt also weaves intriguing dialogue about the instruments and his experience as a composer and musical shaman who has persevered and grown through some of life’s profound challenges. Matt’s compositions and performances have been commended by his world-wide fans. He has a history of performing at progressive happenings like the TED Conferences and diverse concert venues either as a soloist or with his San Francisco-based ensemble, The Venusians. Visit Matt’s website at www.mattvenuti.com for video excerpts of his performances and demonstrations of the Hang and Tubal.

PANArt Instruments

Hang & Gubal

The Hang is a contemporary musical instrument, often referred to as a “sound-sculpture” created in 2000 by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer, owners of a small company called PANArt in Bern, Switzerland. By the year 2013, following the evolution of several generations of several thousand Hang instruments, PANArt had decided to focus on a new creation, the Tubal.

Both the Hang and Gubal are made from a steel-based alloy called Pang®, a patented material developed by the instrument makers themselves. This material is partly what gives their instruments such a captivating sound with the slightest of effort. The non-linear, somewhat cosmic playing field, the richness of tone, the unprecedented versatility of playing options and the dynamic response to the slightest touch has caught the attention of the masses and has generated a legion of devoted players and listeners worldwide.

Hang® Gudu

The Hang® Gudu is a hand-played percussion instrument that projects the enchanting sonic properties and resonance of Pang®, a composite material developed by PANArt, while honoring the indigenous udu clay pot from Nigeria. Matt Venuti was the first to transport this recent creation to the U.S and tonight, Ian Dogole will be performing on what is likely the second such instrument to cross our borders.

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.

Musicians:

  • René Jenkins – Native American, Zapotec and Mayan drone flutes, didjeridu, antara (Andean pan flute), djembe and assorted bowls, bells and rattles
  • Ian Dogole – udu, kalimbas, hang, doumbek, talking drum, cajon, bells and shakers
  • Rafael Meza – guitar and vocals

View a video of René Jenkins, Ian Dogole and Kim Atkinson in concert – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fcd2b4RzrI8

Tickets: $25 – Wine and other beverages will be available for purchase at a nominal price

A portion of the proceeds from this concert will go to support the Chaupin School in Carhuaz, Peru.

Sacred Chakana Ceremony

Sunday May 31, 3pm

This workshop/ceremony is a shamanic journey of teachings and sound that explore the symbols of the traditional Andean Altar It is a journey into the inner world of the Andean Cosmovision through word, sound writing and drawing and sharing in small groups.. Below Tito writes:

"The Chakana (square cross) is the symbol of symbols in the Ancestral Andean Tradition. It is said that it was not created and that it always existed. The Chakana is that which orders the universe, the space that is within and the space that is outside. Within the Chakana are contained the three worlds. The Hanan Pacha, The Uhju Pacha and the Kay Pacha. The Grandfathers and the Grandmothers of the tradition divided the world, the Chakana, into these three worlds, the Hanan Pacha, the world above, The Uhju Pacha, the world within, and the Kay Pacha, the world of the present or the here and now. This workshop-ceremony is a shamanic journey into these three dimensions of time and space and life.

The Chakana is also a celebration of life and its diversity. It is a bridge to the cosmic, to the trancendent, and to ones interior. The Chakana is sacred geometry, it is sound and it is Light. In this workshop we will also work with the four sacred directions, with your chaupin, your center, your power, and your essence.

This ceremony workshop lasts between four and five hours. $110.


Pacarina: Ritual de Nacimiento

Saturday June 6, 11am

In the Andean tradition, Paqarina is a word and symbol which refers to the origin, which links us to the dawn, with birth and with life. Paqarina is the lake. It is the source, it is every place of and every moment of birth and every space that generates creativity and life. When we are creating, we are a Paqarina, when something opens within us, we are a Paqarina.

Like all transcendental words, there exists in the meaning of Paqarina the idea of duality that is complementary, like the opening and closing of cycles, so that if there is to be a dawn or a beginning, a cycle has to be closed. The closing Paqarina weaves the possibility of the opening of a new time. In this process we ask ourselves, what cycle must end, what spaces should close, what part of me must die so that life can arise again, so that I can start a new cycle, and open a new space within me and in my life.

This ceremony is a ritual of passage and of birth that allows us to close a cycle so that we can open a new cycle. We will have a sacred moment with the the sacred element of water and with messages from Grandparents from the four sacred directions of our Tradition to assist us to dissolve and purify everything we have to leave behind to make space for what we want to be born. On paper we will write and draw from a state of higher consciousness, exploring all that we want to release and transform from our past and our present life. Then we will visualize, and give breath and shape to our dreams together, working with nine sound vibrations of the Andean Tradition in a shamanic journey of inner transformation, life and birth.

This ceremony is between 3-4 hours in length and is for a minimum of 8 people and a maximum 16 people. $100.

Ayni Projects Presents...Concerts At The Farm
Written by Administrator   
Saturday, 25 October 2014 00:00

Ayni Projects (www.ayniprojects.com), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is launching an exciting new concert series at its enchanting sanctuary in north Petaluma. The new Concerts at the Farm series signals a brand new dimension to Ayni’s outreach with a mission to support the arts, support musicians who give their lives to their art and the communities they uplift, and continue to provide funding for Ayni’s humanitarian projects in the Central Andes in Peru.

Musicians featured in these intimate concerts represent a diverse spectrum of styles that span the “World,” Jazz and Classical arenas with much cross-pollination. The thread that ties all of these performances together is the principle of “Ayni” or reciprocity, through the mutual experience of healing and uplift that occurs when musicians and audiences interact in such an intimate and welcoming environment as the Munay Farms sanctuary.

A Vision of “Ayni” (Reciprocity) and Community
According to series organizer and percussionist Ian Dogole, “I have had the immense pleasure of performing in this magical space on numerous occasions, often with my musical hermano, Tito La Rosa, and the experiences have been both transcendent and unforgettable. Thanks to Ayni Projects founder and series host Ailish Schutz, we now have an opportunity to reach out to our local community with a series of world-class musical performances that is designed to elevate our spirits and bring us all closer together at a time when there is so much chaos and struggle across the planet.”

Performers in the Inaugural Season
One of the intriguing elements of the Concerts at the Farm series is the programming of unusual combinations of performers of diverse backgrounds and cultures who are not only stellar musicians and composers; they are bandleaders and visionaries. This is sure to generate thrilling new possibilities that our guests will experience up-close and in the moment.

Here is a small sample of musicians you will hear in varying combinations during our initial season: Tito La Rosa, Ian Dogole, René Jenkins, Jennifer Curtis, Yassir Chadly, Pauchi Sasaki, Gary Malkin, Matthew Montfort (Ancient Future), Mariah Parker, Paul McCandless, Deborah Winters and many more.

The Concert Experience at the Munay Farms Sanctuary
When you attend a concert at the Munay Farms sanctuary, the feeling is akin to a homey, oversized living room where you can stretch out and still be close enough to the music to feel like you are part of it. The environment is warm and inviting and conducive to a powerful and memorable listening experience.

Community Drumming (and Dancing) at the Farm
One of the most uplifting and healthful activities we can share is the playing of drums as a group. And what could be a more welcoming environment in which to revel in the beat of the drum than the Munay Farms sanctuary?

We invite you to bring your drum (or use one of ours) and join percussionist Ian Dogole in a warm, wild and welcoming ritual of community drumming that will call in the spirits and drive out the demons. And if you just want to dance, come on down and shake it up with us. Stay tuned for dates and times for future drumming extravaganzas.


Upcoming Concerts
Doors open at 7:00 and concerts begin at 8:00 unless otherwise noted.

Saturday, January 17 – Ian Dogole, Matthew Montfort & Mariah Parker – A Magic Carpet Ride Across the Great Musical Divide

Tickets/Reservations – $25 (available online here or at the door). You can purchase tickets online by Paypal or by cash or check at the door. Concert location will be emailed upon completion of your online purchase.

Featuring:

Ian Dogole – udu, cajon, dumbek, kalimba, hang, world percussion

Matthew Montfort – scalloped fretboard and electric guitars

Mariah Parker – piano, santur

Since the late 70s, percussionist Ian Dogole and guitarist Matthew Montfort have been creating multicultural music that knows no boundaries. As the leader of a variety of ensembles, Dogole has integrated the music of many cultures into a highly adventurous, Jazz-based melting pot while Montfort, the architect behind the pioneering world fusion ensemble Ancient Future (including Ian Dogole on five recordings) has assimilated elements of many indigenous music traditions, including those of Indonesia, India and the Middle East, into a captivating brew of cross-cultural delights. Pianist / santurist / composer Mariah Parker has crafted her own delicious blend of “world jazz” as leader of her Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble, which just happens to include Dogole and Montfort. Her compositions are captivating, uplifting and complex. The melding of these three unique musical talents is sure to stir the imagination and transport you to new aural oases never heard before. Fasten your seatbelts and prepare to journey to distant lands.

Dear Tito La Rosa Friends and Fans...

Dear Tito la Rosa Friends and Fans. We received notification today that Tito will not be coming as had been planned this week. We respect and honor his decision and we will let you know when he comes back to visit in the States. Tito wanted to express his apologies for not coming after he had said that he would. He appreciates the love and support that he always receives when he is here and through the invisible world when he is not here. This decision after careful deliberation is essentially about well being and timing. There is nothing to worry about. All is well. Thank you for your love and support. May you have a blessed Equinox and rest of 2014 and Beyond.

From Tito:

Dear Friends, Brothers and Sisters of Ayni community,

I regret to inform you that I have had to make the decision not to travel to San Francisco for my current tour. Family and personal reasons forced me to make this difficult decision not to accompany you on this trip.

The reasons are related to the moment I’m living. Mariel and I will have a baby girl who will be born next month, and it’s important to be together during this last period of waiting. On the other hand, my mother has been ill and I also feel it’s necessary my presence next to her in this moment.

I ask apologies for the suspension of my tour, but I don’t have the peace and strength necessary for a profound healing journey of ceremonies. I know you will understand this time.

I also apologize to the organizers and all those who are generously helping with the organization of this tour, likewise I apologize to my brothers and sisters musicians who always accompany me with its sounds and presence.

A big hug from my sounds, from my heart, and we’ll meet very soon.
Tito La Rosa
