We welcome Ayla Schafer to play in Brighton for the first time! Come and gather with us in this historic Grade II listed church where its high white walls provide superb acoustics.
Ceremonial grade Cacao will softly open our hearts, ready to receive a sweet experience of healing and soul soothing sounds.. This special evening begins with Asha playing solo, followed by Ayla being supported by Asha and Michael.
Ayla Schafer is a multi-lingual ‘world-medicine-folk’ singer-songwriter and a visionary musical artist weaving together a stunning repertoire of original poetic songs with traditional and tribal music, her music expressing a passionate dedication to earth consciousness and the sacred ancient wisdoms.
With a growing international presence she has become known as 'A voice of Mother Earth' and she is a powerful sound in the world of ‘ceremonial/medicine music’ and the rising global community of people who are committed to residing in harmony with the Earth. To experience the essence of this young songstress is to be taken down an enchanting musical journey that ultimately leads us back to the very core of our own inner existence.
