PERU – The Singing Woman
Fri 27th Oct

at Tallebudgera Valley Community Centre

Peru is a potent singer of the divine feminine, weaving intoxicating chant, spoken word , sacred song with native, eastern instruments and world beats.

When Peru was young her Grandfather, a traveling musician, took her under his wing recognizing her talent for singing. Later on is was his belief that spurred her on to follow that passion . She earned her place in the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, achieving a degree in Jazz Performance.

She started out a little fish struggling to find her place in the big pond of the Sydney jazz scene. With her immense determination, she pushed herself to the forefront until she was singing with the best. And yet this did not fulfill her, she knew there was more to sing for………..
Change of Direction - Peru tells the story:
"One day in the early '90s I went to the Ocean on the Bronte rocks in Sydney and asked the Ocean and the wind to help me sing. I let all my knowledge and concepts of music fall away in total surrender. I sang and sang, nothing I had ever sung before. It felt so incredible, that day after day I went to this special place and sang no words, just sound from the timelessness inside. It felt ancient. I sang with the Ocean and it opened in me. The full moon opened in me and the wind, as I sang in this mindless place.
Then I realized the Earth was pulling me in. I felt her pain, fell to my knees and promised I would give my life to singing for her. Shortly after this promise an indigenous Elder came in to my life and I journeyed with him for ten years. Humanity's ancient history was woven in to me through much chant, ceremony and living close to the earth.
Peru sings for the Earth, the Divine Feminine weaving layers of intoxicating chant, the spoken word and songs of sacred love and eternal truth. She combines grooves, tabla, strings, flutes & exotic Middle Eastern instruments to create a New World music unique to her.
