Koncerts "OM Shantih" 23.okt.2011
Acclaimed music maestro from Italy, Massimo (Max) Ormea, and his OM ENSEMBLE, where in Latvia he is joined by NILS ĪLE (virtuoso of percussions (Latvia)), MARC CITROEN (flute, harmony keyboards (Netherlands)) and a string quartet will take you through an incredibly deep and joyful experience. www.sirdsmuzika.lv Max Ormea: "Actually this will not be a concert but rather an experience with Music and Sound. One of the biggest problems of this world at the moment is that we are not able to move together ... we are able to share the food, fashion styles, technology from different countries, but we are not able to share the wisdom that comes from every culture, and for this reason we are not able to see harmony beyond the cultural differences. The world is full of musicians, but still needs Harmony ... what we will do on stage is actually to create a harmony using musicians coming from different cultures (western cellos, african and latin percussions, indian tabla and sitar, folk guitar, voices ...) in a creative and exciting Fusion (not con-Fusion! ;) between West, East, South... if we are notable to do this on stage, how can we do it in everyday life? This is the purpose of the event ... give to single people an experience of Joy, Peace and Harmony ... with Music ... that does not mean only relaxing music, but Music that uplifts life and spirit, that creates a joyful environment and enthusiasm. This is the responsibility of all arts: we are used to think that the artists are allowed to put into art any kind of emotion, thoughts and moods, including our psychological garbage, but this is not sustainable! It is not ecological! We don't consider that thoughts and emotions can pollute the environment as much as the plastic and the CO2... because in any case we are all connected, we breath the same air... when we are stressed we spread stress everywhere we go, if we are depressed we spread depression in to our relationships ... If we live in fear, we will spread fear through violence ... But when we make an experience of inner peace we become a Presence of Peace ... and if our peace is bigger than others' stress, they will be attracted in to our peace ... otherwise we will be attracted in to their stress! Thus this is not only bringing "entertainment"... but also bringing a social transformation. Music can do this very well! ... as it did for thousands of years in all cultures."
