Celia has been described as “A cross between an Earthy Enya, Joan Baez, and Tina Fey.” She dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and sacred. With powerful, heart-felt vocals and wacky comedic improvisations, the audience never knows what will happen with Celia on stage. She’s Red-headed Renaissance Woman, Celia is a singer/songwriter, actress, and storyteller who will leave you moved by beauty and enchanted with laughter. Both are equally sacred.

Ubaka arrived Monday to prepare for a week of appearances around Minnesota, we talked by phone.

What brings you to Minnesota?
The Women’s Drum Center ( WDC ) is responsible for brings me out and setting up the workshops and concert, and setting up the Million Women Drummers Gathering 2013 , what we call, “Meet and Greets”. One of those will include a workshop but these are primarily to speak about the Million Women Drummers Gathering 2013 initiative/movement and how local and global communities and individuals can be a part of it.

What is the Million Women Drummers Gathering 2013?
It is a two tiered, tow levels, and two phased program. There is a gathering planned for October 11-13th, 2013. Between now and that date it is about raising our consciousness, and becoming more awake and aware that our wooden musical instruments are trees. As simple as that is, it is quite profound to become aware that we are participating in the deforestation of our old growth forests, our third world local woods, and of our wooded areas within the US and around the world. I have been drumming on the wooden drum for over thirty years. There was a point where I was not as awake and aware, and mindful of my participation indirectly, by being a consumer of drums, in the deforestation and the senseless cutting and disrespect of the trees, and the woods. In the sustainability of our future. Around 2007, something awakened inside of me. That awakening had to do with our unconscious consumption of wooden instruments. I am including all wooden instruments, from acoustic guitars, to upright bass’s; pianos, marimba, clarinets, flutes, violins, cellos harps, all the instruments. If we do not sustain the trees that our wooden instruments are made from, we do not have a future for those instruments that we love to play, and listen to, that we enjoy dancing to. We won’t be able to sustain the music of those trees and so won’t be able to sustain the folkloric traditions of our various cultures. Generations that will follow us, will also not have the trees or the wooden instruments for those trees to play.

The Million Women Drummers Gathering 2013 initiative is essentially about creating a new mindful model as musicians and listeners, and players of wooden instruments. This call is coming from the leadership of women who love drums and who love trees. The Gathering in 2013 is a celebration of our new awake and aware selves, and our effort to create a new mindful model through planting trees, through having conversations about trees and creating a sustainable future, and to celebrate this by creating local rhythm circles including all players of wooden instruments while we plant trees and while we begin to create new technologies, ideas, and new approaches to a sustainable green policy for manufacturers, new traditions and new ways to approach the trees and the forest with gratitude and appreciation and the their replenishment.

Wendy Rule & Kari Tauring Concert Sunday

Artist Wendy Rule

This intimate concert at the 120 seat Patrick’s Cabaret features two extraordinary performers whose music has been called otherworldly and transcendent: Australian Wendy Rule & Nordic Roots performer Kari Tauring.  Both are modern mystics who draw on ancient myth to lead their audiences on a sonic trip to the otherworld, invoking nature, fairies and dieties, as well as providing great modern music.

Wild, passionate and empowering, Australian Songstress Wendy Rule, weaves together music, mythology and ritual to take her audience on a transcendent journey of depth and passion.

With the recent release in May 2010 of her sixth full length studio album, Guided by Venus, Wendy has firmly established herself as one of Australia’s most uniquely gifted and prolific artists.

Minneapolis Völva (staff carrier) Kari Tauring will open the show with the otherworldly sounds of lokkr, (summoning calls), accompanied by stav and tein. Huldrelokk, vardlokk, and rune galder blend with Norwegian folk songs and Old Norse Eddic poems to create fresh, environmentally driven compositions.

Kari takes her cues from the energy of the room, the Earth, the audience itself. Her performance will take you on a journey through space and time, ancestral and Earth memory.

The concert is this Sunday, at Patrick’s Cabaret, starting at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are available at the door.  Call Eye of Horus for more information at 612-872-1292 or click here.
