A Different Breath

“Truly to sing, that is a different breath.”

— Rilke

The breath used in singing does indeed seem to be a different breath, by its very nature. It shares its essence, it seems to me,  with yoga breathing (pranayama), embodying the same kind of mind-body connection that this spiritual practice aspires to attain. It is the breath of life, of love, and of connection. It is a breath that holds a deeper creative resonance, as referred to in the ancient scriptures and mystic texts. It is a breath that comes not just from the body, but from the heart, from the soul, and from the spirit.

“The Rain”  |  Anthony Satori

“Feel the rain on your skin / No one else can feel it for you / Only you can let it in / No one else, no one else / Can speak the words on your lips / Drench yourself in words unspoken / Live your life with arms wide open / Today is where your book begins / The rest is still unwritten.”

— Natasha Bedingfield

Dive Bar Messiahs

"Dive Bar Messiahs" | Anthony Satori

“Dive Bar Messiahs”  |  Anthony Satori

The Dive Bar Messiahs headlined last Saturday night at the Lookout Bar and Grill in Channel Islands, California, and they took the house down.  With each individual band member boasting an impressive resume, this newly-formed power trio blew the roof off the place with songs by the Doors, the Beatles and the Animals, and packed the dance floor with tunes such as their unstoppable rendition of Wild Cherry’s “Play That Funky Music.”  Against the backdrop of the Channel Islands Harbor and playing to a diverse crowd, this show was a blast for everyone attending.  Be sure to check out the Dive Bar Messiahs’ Facebook page  and find out where they’re playing next, so you can join the party!   https://www.facebook.com/divebarmessiahs

Trumpet Like Satchmo

"Wail, Man, Wail"  |  Anthony Satori

“Wail, Man, Wail”  |  Anthony Satori

A portrait of musician Chantz Powell.  This performer is a true triple-threat: singer, dancer, trumpet player.  He’s been on the scene for years, and I recently got to see him put on a show on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California.  Crowds gathered, the energy was high, and music was in the air.  Some performers just bring it, no matter where they are, and Chantz is one of those.  If you find yourself in the Santa Monica area this holiday season, keep your eyes and ears open… you might just get lucky and catch a performance.  If not, you can always catch up with him at chantz.com.
