The Ritual Project

The Ritual Project

If you’re a music loving mystic and happen to be in San Francisco this weekend, stop by the San Francisco World Music Festival. Door Dog Music Productions has put together The Ritual Project: Offering | Entering the Fire | Feasting.

Through the exploration of ancient rites and rituals, The Ritual Project has brought together artists from diverse cultures and spiritual traditions.  By sharing the spirit, this musical project is looking for ways to understand our obligations to a world that is changing so profoundly around us.

On the overtly mystical side, the show includes rituals of the Tibetan Shamans of the Himalayan and Pamir Steppes, the spirit infused classical music of India, initiation rites of the West Africa and Caribbean Santeria, Humaya singers and dancers of the Costanoan, Jewish Aramaic rites for the dead and the Chinese I-Ching.

Musically, you’ll find Afro-Cuban percussionist John Santos, Burmese harpist Su Wai, Uzbek percussionist Abbos Kosimom, Tibetan opera singer Techung, Chinese percussionist Wang Wei, Indian tabla master Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri, South Indian violinist Anuradha Sridhar and a number of Bay Area youth ensembles.

Sounds like it’ll sound fantastic.
