Tito la Rosa Joins Heartfeather!
One of the most exciting things about
leading journeys to Peru are the amazing people I have met
and have the privilege to work with and to share with
participants in the Journey. I am so pleased and happy
to announce that in Spring of 2010 we will be sharing the
Journey with master sound healer Tito la Rosa. Tito is
a recognized in Peru as a national treasure and as a
specialist in pre-Columbian musical instruments.
Tito was the featured guest artist on New Age superstar
Kitaro’s 2001 Grammy-winning CD “Thinking of You,” La Rosa
has toured with Kitaro in Japan.
“His attraction to the Spirit dimension and
his love of all things from the natural world allow him
to traverse musical landscapes with tranquility and deep
passion.” - Kitaro
Tito has also recorded with Mary Youngblood on the
Silver Wave record label (www.SilverWave.com), of which
BILLBOARD Magazine says: “La Rosa and Youngblood interweave
North and South American winds like smoke..” La Rosa’s 2002
CD, “The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor” was nominated
for a Native American Music Award, for Best World Music
Tito is also a Curandero de Sonido, a Shaman of Music.
When performing ritual and ceremony for healing, he enters
into an altered state to bring forth sound that elevates the
frequency of an individual and allows for healing and
balance to occur.
La Rosa was a main presenter at the International
Conference on Traditional Instruments in Contemporary Music,
sponsored by the French Government. He also took part in
“Heart and Hands: Musical Instrument Makers of America,” a
Smithsonian traveling exhibit.
The Plan - Part 1, the Andes
On this journey, we will spend 8 days in the mountains
in a small village near Huascaran, one of the largest
mountains in the world (see top photo).
There we will explore Andean philosophy and music. Each
person will have the opportunity to learn the basics of
playing several instruments and will learn their use as
vehicles for healing. We will visit and do ceremonies
at sacred lakes, take steam baths in natural caves, see
unimaginably beautiful vistas, and have an excursion and do
ceremony at some of the most ancient archeological ruins in
the world - all the while immersing ourselves in the beauty
and timelessness of the Peruvian Andes and ancient Andean
philosophy and culture.
