Sound Bath with Naike Swai and Yaara Valey
Please join us for a special, electronic musical "sound bath" with Portland-based ambient musical artists Naike Swai and Yaara Valey. Each sound bath is a unique, time-based, improvised ambient musical experience to encourage deep relaxation and somatic release.
Using an introductory set of verbal cues, guests can participate from home by finding a comfortable area to rest and listen from. These events are created to help all participants find moments to turn off the active logical brain and suspend yourself in temporary thoughtlessness.
Naike is a multi-instrumentalist, acupuncturist and astrologer of Tanzanian and German heritage. Brought up with a guitar and ngoma (traditional Tanzanian drum), they expanded their musical studies in New Delhi, India by learning the Indian Bamboo flute, also known as Bansuri with Maestro Harsh Wardhan. Naike is member of the Hawaiian Sound School and trained in a variety of sound healing modalities, which include Biosonics. As practitioner of the healing arts, they believe that sound, in all its myriad vibrations powerfully integrates our lives. Naike also sees private clients by appointment in the Portland Metro area.
