MaMuse hosts an evening of singing together in circle, on the night before our first pilgrimage walk in Point Reyes National Seashore (see Seasonal Pilgrimages). The intention is to be together, weaving voices and connecting hearts. The menu of songs will include a range of simple rounds, four-part harmonies from Mamuse's original repertoire, and songs written by other fellow song carriers. We sing on themes of Joy, Gratitude and Grief—diving into the depths of life and lifting each other up in service to the well-being of all. Please join us to welcome in the waters of our emotions and sing to the waters that all eventually find their way to the ocean. Every voice is welcome and no prior singing experience is required.
Wholeheartedly fed by the folk and gospel traditions, MaMuse (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker) creates uplifting music to inspire the world into thriving. Interweaving brilliant and haunting harmony with lyrics born of honed emotional intelligence, MaMuse invokes a musical presence that inspires the opening of the heart. Often playing a variety of acoustic instruments (upright bass, guitar, mandolins, ukulele and flutes), these two powerful women embody a love for all life. The synergy that is created through their musical connection is palpable and truly moving to witness. With nine years of co-creation and four albums under their belts, MaMuse keeps their hearts tuned to the creation of music for the health of all beings.
