1. MADRE FUEGO
1. MADRE FUEGO
Madre Fuego is a scream that has been with me for years, a form of walking, of feeling, of relating to who I am and to what happens to me. It is my arrow launched into infinity.
It has been so far my way of playing with music, voice, words, inspiration, the Mystery, and the dance of order and chaos in my life, in Nature, in the elements, and it is the result of my good and my bad moves and decisions in life…...
It is a dream and represents my way of walking through my life.
It is also the product of relationships that came together through respect, love and talent, and an expression of sovereignty, creativity and beauty.
It is a co-creation that has been fueled at the centre of the circle and returns to the circle to be shared and to grow.
Madre Fuego was recorded in the South of France, and it was produced through a profound bond with a group of dedicated and well known artists, from different origins, who have developed with real mastery their vision, art, talent and heart in the interests of the messages in each of these 13 songs.
Madre Fuego is independent from the mainstream in its creation, editing and distribution. That is why the CD will be funded by this crowdfunding platform.
We invite you to participate in this project so that these songs can flourish, grow and expand inside the heart of each of us and our communities, as one more aspect of the network of relationships that permit us to walk in sovereignty, freedom and sustainability, when we support our dreams and each other.
Thank you very much!

Yoga de la Voz®: Yoga de la Voz® is a method created by Ines Lolago, who offers a deep and meaningful work with the voice, that goes further beyond mere technique, taking into account each person as a whole and taking as a starting point that body, mind and spirit have to be one in order to let the voice show all of her beauty and potential.
