sacred-earth-LANEWAY_20130109__MG_5250-HRFor the last 10 years Prem and Jethro have traveled the world, performing and recording their unique Sacred Earth Music.

Prem shares her devotion for spirit and our precious Mother Earth through mantra and songs from the heart supported by husband Jethro on Japanese shakuhachi, Native American and Indian bansuri flutes, percussion, Irish whistles, vocals and guitar.

Jethro’s path to devotional music evolved via studies in Chinese medicine, martial arts, shiatsu and meditation.

When he was introduced to bamboo flutes from India and Japan he felt an immediate connection to their sacred sound and was soon performing around Australia with Spirit Dance.

When Jethro and Prem completed their yoga teacher training, they began creating music that incorporated yoga, meditation, natural healing, their reverence of the earth, and transformative sounds to create their duo, Sacred Earth Music.

As a former folksinger, Prem’s shift to devotional music saw her initially discard lyrics. She sang only feelings, which no words she knew in the English language could express. The result was a potent connection to her own inner emotion and Mother Earth. Her original compositions blend ancient languages with the language of her own heart, as well as her playing keyboards, guitar and harmonium.

Sacred Earth – music for inner peace, Saturday May 3, Mullumbimby Civic Hall.

Tickets: Pre-sale online $25 / door $30, at www.spiritfestival.com.au.
