Madi Sato, 5:30 PM Potluck, outdoor fire weather permitting, open mic.
Presenting local award-winning singer, songwriter, poet and sound healer Madi Sato. She will be sharing her poetry, as well as, the ancient poetry of Japan. For the past 5 years Madi went from being a touring musician sharing her poetry through her music, live and recorded to going back to her roots of Japan studying and performing ancient and traditional music of Japan. This journey has lead her to the practice of incorporating sound healing into her music and writing. Spend an intimate evening with Madi Sato as she takes you from her personal experiences to the transpersonal expressions of the poetry within ancient Japanese chanting, known as Shigin, as well as, chants from around the world.
