More on Voxmana:
After connecting in New York City’s underground music scene, Natalia Clavier and Andrei Matorin joined forces to birth VOXMANA. Together, they produce what they like to call “Intentional Dance Music” or IDM, electronic dance music that creates a context for healing. Fusing their multi-cultural backgrounds Clavier and Matorin mix everything from electronic, world music, jazz and blues to Argentine folklore and Brazilian MPB in a unique cocktail, brewing sonic medicine for all types of audiences. Their music is a call to celebrate life on the dance floor and awaken through deep embodied journeys with infectious grooves.
Andrei and Natalia have entertained large audiences all over the world with their immersive, genre-bending sonic experiences rooted in classical and jazz traditions with a modern twist. Clavier is an Argentinian singer, songwriter, DJ, keeper of medicine songs. She has three solo albums under her belt and has performed live and written songs as lead singer for internationally acclaimed electronic world music duo Thievery Corporation. Brazilian born Matorin is a virtuoso violinist, composer and producer featured as a soloist at such prestigious institutions as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, MoMA, and TEDx. He also received the great honor of graduating Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music.
James Bird: James Bird is a facilitator, poet and multi-instrumentalist musician hailing from Shelburne Falls, MA. James aims to invite the magic out of seemingly ordinary moments, using improvisation or one of his many mythic songs, weaving atmospheres that invite us to feel and to remember. Bird is a threshold bard, playing for those journeying through life's many thresholds, including marriage, birth and death. He also teaches "Bardic Embodiment", for those wishing to expand their experience as songwriters and song carriers from the vantage point of the old bards.
