Ayni Projects Welcomes Back Tito La Rosa

You are invited to
Cantos Shamanicos de Curacion

Shamanic Songs of Healing

To celebrate and experience the power of sound healing.

"Sound as seed allows you to cultivate the warmth in your chest so that you can allow it to open and glow. It lets you build your own history, make your own path. Sound as invisible energy fills you with strength, awakens your inner warrior, and connects you with your center so that you can make the major changes that you need to make in your life. Sound is luminous vibration that lets you leave your shadows and the darkness of your trauma so that you can be renewed and return to life. Luminous vibration can connect you to the divine and with your essence.” -- Tito La Rosa (spoken at a course on working shamanically with sound).

Two adventurous musical spirits who delight in the here and now.

Songs for being Born

To celebrate with us the theme of Birth.

"The theme of this visit is embodied in the word Paqarina. It is the lake. It is the source, it is every place of and every moment of birth, every space that generates creativity and life. When we are creating, we are a Paqarina, when something opens within us, we are a Paqarina." -- Tito La Rosa

Ayni Projects (, 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.

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.
