Qhawekazi (Facilitator): I am an ethnomusicologist, vocalist, researcher, and teacher, originally from East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa. I am passionate about the preservation of indigenous knowledge systems, music, instruments and using musical sound to help alleviate the anxiety and stress disorders experienced by youth & the greater community. I founded Amaza Sound Journeys which is a company that offers unique sound journeys using therapeutic instruments that produce natural overtones of specific frequencies, to create a safe and timeless space in which one can examine and reprogram old patterns and issues, to reconnect with their higher self. In our modern world we are exposed to things that disrupt our health on a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual level. Sound healing can assist in restoring one’s sense of wellbeing and harmony and teach us to hold these naturally healthy and joyous frequencies in our bodies. Amaza Sound Journeys also offers intimate group sessions which feature a variety of musicians and multidisciplinary artists who encourage the use of music and sound as a tool in creating support structures around the practice of meditation and, to offer mental wellbeing interventions through the arts. Ceduma (Co- Facilitator): I am an ethnomusicologist, vocalist, African indigenous instrumentalist and cultural practitioner originally from the Eastern Cape currently based in Pretoria. My mediums are sound, space and indigenous instruments all aimed to preserving African indigenous knowledge, instruments and systems finding ways to keep them relevant through the moving times. Through sound baths I aim to explore the depths of African cosmology through the power of sound, bridging art, spirituality, and culture in a profound and immersive way.
