“Some bands call themselves shamanic but you guys are the real thing!”
Join us for a virtual release party on Facebook live for Life Force Arts Ensemble’s new album “Wolf Magic”. Improvisational and channeled music calling in the spirit of Wolf as Teacher. Life Force Arts Ensemble (LFAE) is a company of healing-teaching interdisciplinary artists who channel powerful spiritual energy to transform, heal and enlighten our audiences. LFAE members Barry Bennett and Joan Forest Mage (featured on this album) have been creating shamanic music and dance together since 1999.
This album is dedicated to Nana Shineflug (1935-2015) dancer and teacher, who Barry and Joan worked with for many years. Nana was a force of nature and “den mother to countless Chicago dancers and dance enthusiasts.” As Jamie Sams says, “Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine.”
Praise for Life Force Arts Ensemble
“Life Force Arts Ensemble was amazing! Sonorous chanting moving over me like a balm! Healing and empowering.”
“I literally feel energy move when I listen to [LFAE’s “Journeys in the Dreamtime” album]. If you’re at all sensitive to the energies around you, this CD has the mojo. It is a favorite for meditation. Highly recommend it.”
“This album [LFAE’s “Journeys in the Dreamtime”] feels like it was ripped from someone’s innards. This is good in the sense that it is authentically human and raw, with sophisticated musicianship. It is only bad if you don’t want to face what is ripped open in yourself.”
“Life Force Arts Ensemble’s performers are laid bare by the manifestation of Spirit. It’s the kind of vulnerability that might make some uncomfortable, which is exactly why it’s such a powerful thing to experience… what you are really seeing is a glimpse of what it means to be a spiritual being learning to be human.”
