As 2017 comes to an end, I now know that this year has been my greatest ever “teacher”.
This year I found the courage to take action. This year I conquered my fears and emerged into a new life.
And now, in the transition between 2017 and 2018, I can promise myself: never again will I betray my heart. (more…)
Creativity knows no time of day. If you have the great fortune of a visit by creativity, it arrives without warning, any time of day or night.

The tune for this gospel song came to me in the middle of the night a few days ago. A friend of mine wrote the words for me in the time it took to have a shower… and yesterday we were up before dawn to shoot this video..

The thrill of creativity: immense.
The pleasure of sharing this creativity: beyond word.
My Dear Friends in Sound,
I am not the only one who welcomes this time of year as a period of love, giving and thinking of others… of slowing down to perceive the needs of those around us.
It can also be a time to think of ourselves.
What about you?
What are you going to give yourself as a reward for everything you have done this year, for all of your efforts, all of that energy you’ve lavished on your life and the people you care about?
What are you doing to restore the harmony, peace and love?
Modern Mantras I, by Velka-Sai
For me, sound is the answer.
I would love you to listen to a track that means a lot to me… “Love Moves (all before it)”. That love moves everything is something I fervently believe.
Click on this link to listen to “Love Moves”.
Feel free to download it. It’s my gift to you.
If you’d like to buy the album the track is on, as an act of love towards yourself or as a gift for your nearest and dearest, “Modern Mantras I” is available on Amazon, iTunes and other online music stores.
With festive love,
Fellow Travellers on the Waves of Sound,
That “Life is a journey” is one of life’s great clichés.
A cliché is a cliché because it has been used so many times… for the simple reason that it is true… we can all identify with it.
Life truly is a journey. For many (and for me), it is “The Journey”.
the road we travel, telling stories along the way
Even more so at times when it may seem to us that we are going nowhere, when everything appears to be the same, unchanging… at times of misfortune, adversity… even irreversible change.
When it has been my turn to traverse such times, they have turned out to be a release… A veritable death to be reborn into a new life.
For me, my latest Journey began four or five years ago, at a time of profound crisis…
This is the journey I share through sound, meditative singing and the effects they have on me and on others. The embraces, smiles and tears… More than anything, looking you in the eye, hearing your stories – the stories we all have, which are the inspirational heart of my life and my music…
The truth? I love stories.
Everybody has a wondrous story. The marvel of this virtual world on social networks is how easy it is to share them.
There is no better way to travel than by sharing stories. Tell me your story, how you use the talents life gave you… Tell me of the adversities you have overcome to be reborn into your true Self…
Everything that we say, do and think has an echo.
What we say and do here, including on a smartphone screen, can be a source of beauty and creativity… stories of wondrous lives.
I am listening.
