An Evening of Sacred Music, Mystic Poetry and World Percussion with Brenda McMorrow and John de Kadt
A sublime adventure into the world of sacred sound.
Brenda McMorrow and John de Kadt create a powerful and ecstatic experience of song and sound, featuring Brenda's exquisite voice and folk-inspired guitar, and John's mesmerizing percussion and spoken word. Their music and mystic poetry, along with the sublime steel Hang (pronounced "hung") drum, take us on a stirring, nourishing, and heart opening journey into the world of sacred sound. With Sanskrit Mantra and Kirtan (call and response singing) as the basis, they weave in the power of Spanish Medicine songs and inspiring English lyrics to create a healing and uplifting tapestry with the audience.
Devotional Chant Artist Brenda McMorrow shares a unique and warmly embracing style of music, in which she blends elements of acoustic folk, world rhythms, ancient Indian mantras and Spanish medicine songs with a sweetly introspective singer-songwriter’s sensibility. Yoga Journal describes Brenda as having “a knack for expressing the deepest realizations in the sparsest lyrics”. Spiritual teacher Ram Dass has said: “Brenda has a gift”, and her music has been touching people’s hearts across the planet.

He has studied and played ethnic hand percussive instruments for over 30 years; studied with percussion masters around the world; and has performed on PBS and NBC.
