Lily Fangz with Special Guest
Underground Hip Hop
Lily Fangz is about fully engaging in the creative explorations of life, biting down, activating those around with passion, perspective, and perhaps asking the questions that aren’t posed enough. Wordplay started way back- writing since she could hold a pencil, that process evolved into stories, sketches, poetry, rhymes. Her memory is capacious and flow sick like contagious- so she began to share her words and release them free from their pages. Gravitated towards performance poetry, a lot of slams, jams, and cyphers. Realizing making music and art is the only thing that can quench her thirst LFangz is here to chomp down and invites all to join the feast of engaging with this human experience!

Ancestral Hymns and Traditional Ballads
Peia Luzzi is an American born song collector, writer and multi-instrumentalist based in the mountains of Southern Oregon. Like water from a deep well, she draws inspiration from her ancestral roots of Celtic and Old World European folk music. With the voice of a lark, Peia dances nimbly from Child Ballads and 17th C. Gaelic laments, to Waulking Songs, and Bulgarian mountain calls. She has traveled extensively over the past 10 years to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring to honor their language and stories, while bringing a piece of herself to each song she carries.
A powerful voice in the rising global community of people who are committed to restoring a balanced relationship with the Earth, Peia expresses her holistic vision and passion through her music, educational workshops and advocacy for social and environmental rights groups.
Peia’s revolving collaborative ensemble weaves in rich vocal harmonies, driving percussion, and intricate guitar work, together with her own instrumentation on charangon and harmonium to create lush, organic soundscapes. Her mesmerizing performances offer authentic re-imaginings of traditional musical treasures, along with a stunning repertoire of her own original songs.

Original Currency: Mapacho Vol. I
Medicinal Hip Hop with Wayra & YashAkasha
Primordial presence meets purposed creative flow… and it’s fresh to death. Gifted sacred-song teacher, Wayra Wagner, and interdimensionally touring MC, YashAkasha, have joined forces to form a multilingual domestic collaboration like no other. Together they co-create the ultimate Medicinal Hip Hop fusion for the Current Era. The grooves make you move, the vocals are rich and rootsy, and the lyricism is right on the money. Through the ancient codex of rhythm and rhyme, we gain access to a secret alphabet, a universal language, and a supreme intelligence. This music merges worlds, drawing on cross-cultural roots, from Wayra’s Quechua-Muisca heritage to Yasha’s initiations in Kabbalah to the original principles of underground Hip Hop itself. They will be sharing songs from the new project where Mamacha+Papacho=Mapacho Vol. I…
YashAkasha has been performing poetry on stage and rhyming with a passion since his earliest childhood memories. Soon after his first homemade music video quickly gained thousands of views, his song for Standing Rock was selected as a finalist for a Hip Hop competition by Talib Kweli and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez. He then went on to release his first album, Rapture (2017), which was well-received, including press coverage in Delumin/a online journal. His second album, Renaissance (2020) is a recent release by Original Currency prod. Treaphort feat. Nirete “Amor” Llopis & published in collaboration with Golden Turtle Sound and YA Productions (a branch of Worldchangers Organization and YashAkasha LLC). YashAkasha has collaborated with many artists such as Lily Fangz and Srikala and shared the stage as an opener for artists such as Matisyahu, Liquid Bloom, Porangui, Amber Lily and Tubby Love.

Full Sound Healing Ensemble
Dream Seed is a two-hour sound bath hosted by members of Golden Drum and Didge Project. Shamanic chanting, mantras, overtone singing, Native American songs, indigenous music, didgeridoos, crystal singing bowls, bells, gongs, harmoniums, tuning forks and other overtone-emitting instruments are used to create an environment conducive to deep relaxation and inward investigation. Participants are led through guided meditations and sound healing practices designed to harmonize body, mind and spirit.
“Tonight’s event was a spiritual ceremony first and a concert second. Not because the music wasn’t the most transcendent but because the function felt like it was to to connect with our souls and to elevate us and to heal us rather than simply to deliver music for enjoyment or entertainment.
It was the sound of the soul to align the souls to the greater spirit and it was effective and it was really powerful and it was spontaneous. It was loving. It brought us to the peace that does surpass understanding.”
