The Rise of the Goddess Culture is now!
Every once in a while in moments of awe, we experience life in its fullest and the veil that separates us from the divine disappears. We recognize ourselves as the creator, the sustainer and the destroyer all at once. We experience the wordless and trace the traceless. We recognize ourselves as truth/bliss/consciousness itself, Goddess!
This song is a declaration of that feeling and a celebration for the rise of Goddess in our hearts. In those moments of unfiltered awareness, we experience our true being, we wake up from the dream and see it all as if for the first time.
The labels we associate with dissolve. Distinctions such as good and bad no longer have a hold and we become boundless.Through this major collaboration, we created this music video to bring to life this song by Madhu & Ege. From California to Colorado, Turkey to Nepal, Morocco to Russia, we all offered our hearts and souls to express the meaning of these words. We invite you to watch this story of the Goddess as she flows through us. And join in, with your voice and your body. Dance and sing to recognize your life as Goddess experiencing Goddess.
In every moment, in everything and everywhere, chant these words: I Am Goddess.
Egemen Sanli is a modern dervish traveling to find his own voice within world music, carrying the flag of his Turkish roots as a musician. Ege plays the sitar alongside other ethnic instruments (shamisen, saz, hang and handpan drums, banjo, flutes) and is able to bring out the mystic and invigorating qualities of all. He utilizes beats, loops and tanpura machines to compliment his joyful improvisations based on traditional Eastern ragas. Ege lives in San Francisco and performs regularly in the Bay Area, he is also a certified Yoga teacher.
Madhu Anziani is a sound healer, musician, and a qi gong practitioner who used the power of sound and his voice to heal from tetraplegia (paralysis affecting all four limbs). In 2009, after experiencing a traumatic fall, which shattered two of his neck vertebrae, Madhu used his knowledge of sound, energy (chi), and the healing power of the voice to completely recover from an injury that should have kept him wheelchair-bound for life. He shares the techniques he used to heal and transform himself. Madhu has a degree in Jazz/World music performance from San Francisco State University and is certified in Sound, Voice, and Music Healing from the California Institute of Integral Studies.
