I had the pleasure of meeting Dakota, Marty and Cody who were inviting everyone passing through Portage Place in Winnipeg to their wonderful, powerful event. They were very warm and brotherly, and I am extending this invitation out to this Aboriginal festival, open to the public, it is a great opportunity to enjoy our oneness and connection with everyone and Mother Earth.
In addition, please join  Sahaja Yoga Winnipeg for Free Meditation Classes from March 24th to March 28th, 2017 to also connect to Mother Earth through a simple, guided meditation known as “thoughtless awareness”, with no hard poses, you can sit in a chair or on the floor, and feel the connection, joy and peace.
Achieving the yoga state is a great tool for students during exam pressures, relieving anxiety, emotional balance, harmony and better health. A great way to de-stress and connect to your higher self. All ages are welcome, and it is always free, in 100 countries, world-wide.

Chantal Kreviazuk: A Modern Day Poet and Musical Powerhouse Gives Flawless, Intimate Performance at London Music Hall and Subsequent Tours 2016-2017

London Music Hall in Ontario Canada is one of the best kept secrets in terms of venue. Chantal Kreviazuk delivered a flawless performance and a  rare appearance in close quarters for a mere $50! I was weary that it would be standing room only, but the concert had seating for several hundred in an intimate setting. Chantal’s voice and talent proved to be inspiringly deep, with an incredible range of notes melodiously filling each heart in attendance. Go to http://www.chantalkreviazuk.com/tour.html to attend her concert and purchase her album, which is incredible. You can still catch her in Niagara falls Nov. 19th at 7pm, Thursday Nov. 17th in Chatham, On, and Toronto on Dec. 1, 2016.

Chantal’s singer, song writer, piano playing, audience-connecting lyrics were moving. She’s not afraid to belt out a tune at seemingly any range, from whisper to scream. Her art is a refreshing reprieve from “top 40” radio churnings. Yet you will find her here and there, and realize she has always been on quality radio stations that respect her contribution to music on a global scale. She is disarming, humble, real, funny, and a bonafide rock star.

Hard Sail the title track of her new cd,  makes it impossible to choose a favourite track. Every song draws you in, and my friend and I scramble to read the lyrics that trail off unapologetically for dramatic effect. And then we are so in awe of each brilliant lyric set to piano genius. Kevin Fox accompanied and complemented her with his voice and, was it a cello and guitar? What a glorious combination of strings and keys weaving a musical tale.

In light of poet and lyricist Leonard Cohen’s departure from this world, Chantal treated the audience to his oft covered song, Hallelujah…with heavenly piano playing and singing with crystal clear vocal chords. With references to her children, her singer husband Raine Maida (www.rainemaida.net) of Our Lady Peace, and visiting Peru to help provide hearing aids, it was much like visiting her in her living room. It was only a few short summers ago that Chantal Kreviazuk played the Burlington Sound of Music Festival (soundofmusic.ca ) with Raine Maida much to the delight of both their fans. If music has a heaven, they would be in it.

The difference is, Chantal Kreviazuk seeks to elevate the room with her oozy talent. I don’t know about you all out there, but we were so appreciative of these fresh and truthful words set to music after months of campaign over-coverage of the U.S. Elections. A Canadian flag from the audience made its appearance as the performance went into two encores.

I hope you get a chance to snap up some tickets for Chantal Kreviazuk on her 2016 tour. She reminds me a lot of singer, songwriter, piano player http://www.facebook/marijoelmusic who I thoroughly enjoyed musically during her tour in Canada for Culture days http://www.free-meditation.ca/archives/19833. Their authentic style and indisputable talent seem to be swaying the vote, long closed, towards truth, inner-beauty, talent, peace and the bonding of the like-minded and like-hearted that see the value of coming together as global guardians. Leave it to the artists to raise awareness of what really matters in this lifetime through their modern day poetry as guiding forces through times that are…a changing. Hope such live music concerts inspire you to strum, play and write to define your self, express your self, and share your self.
