UUCB Concerts for a Cause: INANNA

UUCB Concerts for a Cause:  INANNA, Sisters in Rhythm

UUCB Concerts for a Cause is pleased to present the Inanna, Sisters in Rhythm, on January 12th at 7:30 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick.

Inanna, Sisters in Rhythm, is an all-women’s percussion and vocal ensemble dedicated to cultural diversity, education, and healing through the universal language of music. The roots of Inanna’s music come from traditional world songs and rhythms of Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and other indigenous cultures. Blended with their own western vocal harmonies, they bring forth an ancient sacred sound that feeds the soul and lightens the heart.
Inanna

Inanna was originally created by the participants of a drum class in Alna, Maine in 1989.  They take their name from an ancient Sumerian goddess, who held reign more than 4,000 years ago during a period when it is believed that drummers and dancers were predominantly women. The ensemble chose the name of this goddess in the hopes of raising awareness of the need for divine feminine energies to bring about balance to our planet.

Together for 28 years, the band has recorded six full-length albums, been invited to schools to teach drumming and world cultures to youth, and have performed extensively at numerous percussion festivals and community events. Members of the ensemble have traveled throughout the world to study with master drummers including Famoudou Konaté, Yaya Diallo, Layne Redmond, Glen Velez, and Babatunde Olatunji.

Members of Inanna, Sisters in Rhythm:

Annegret Baier, a German native with a degree from the University of Music in Stuttgart. She has been studying the drum rhythms of the Malinke people in Guinea, West Africa for over 20 years. She lives with her family in Portland where she teaches drum classes, offers artist in residency programs and performs with several bands.

Tori Morrill lives in Palermo and has BA in Social Anthropology.  She has been studying world music for over 25 years.  She holds workshops and is currently working on organizing retreats where people come together to experience the positive physical and mental health benefits of participatory rhythm-based activities.

Shirsten Lundblad of Brunswick has a Masters in Divinity degree from Harvard, and makes her living as a massage therapist, yoga teacher, and musician.  She and Tori together teach ongoing frame drumming classes, including Layne Redmond’s six month intensive studies program . She has a particular interest in sound healing, both in the context of individual therapy as well as in community.  Shirsten is also a facilitator with Satyana Gender Reconciliation International, an organization whose purpose is to transform the roots of gender injustice and disharmony.
