Mz. imani is committed to an inclusive sense of earth based spiritual practice that encourages all people to return to their heARTs wisdom, and to explore the ceremonial roles of the drum, music, dance and art. She inspires us to actively engage with the spiritual energies of the universe, through community music, collaborative art, collective prayer and the co-creation of positive myths. She is a collaborator and works with people of all walks of life to activate a Living Prophecy of renewal, respect and harmony, and takes care of a Sound Chamber in Swannanoa, NC.
Mz. imani is a people’s artist, who consciously blurs the line between performance, art and ceremony. She calls our attention through the power of the drum, our collective imag-i-nation and the dance of the sacred elements. She invites and inspires the songs of our heARTs to come forward, while circumambulating the sacred fire. Here we open to contemplation and celebration of that which matters to us. That which may help the heART of Humanity to Heal.

Holy River (formerly Lobo Marino)
Named after the enormous Pacific Sea Lion, Lobo Marino’s brand of experimental folk draws from a rich palette of international and folk influences.
Built primarily on harmonium, bass drum, banjo and various unique instruments and voices, Lobo Marino continues to evolve as the musical response to the continuous travels and ongoing spiritual journey of its members, Laney Sullivan and Jameson Price.
They are also the founders of Earth Folk Collective and Fonticello Food Forest in Richmond,VA. Deeply dedicated to environmental and social causes, when traveling they carry in their music a message of humanity’s need for reconnection with the earth. While at home, they spend time community organizing and running their donation based educational homestead Earth Folk Collective. Learn more at www.lobomarino.com
