$25 in advance / $30 day-of
Following the release of her acclaimed debut album, British-Portuguese singer-songwriter Nessi Gomes (winner of the best unsigned British female artist for 2016) is embarking on her first North American tour.
A ‘Voice Bath’ is a great opportunity to relax, unwind, and take some time to recharge and nourish the emotional, physical and spiritual self. It is a perfect alternative for those who struggle with a simple meditation structure. Let the ‘Voice Bath’ support you into a more quiet space as it massages and bathes you.
This is a passive group sound-healing session lasting for approximately 1 hour, using toning, over-toning, chimes and percussion. All that is required of you is that you rest on the floor or in a chair and the healing sound will do the rest.
Following the Voice Bath, Nessi will take you on a deeply therapeutic sonic journey, playing songs from her new album “Diamonds and Demons” and taking you deeper into the mystery and majesty of musical medicine.
Limited space available for this very special musical treat!
Born on the tiny Island of Guernsey to a Portuguese family, Nessi Gomes channels influences from both sides of her ethnicity, blending the essence of the traditional, emotional and ‘larger than life’ Fado folk music with British progressive modern inspiration.
“Hauntingly atmospheric and lushly textured nods to Bjork & Kate Bush”
Paul Lester – The Guardian
“A record that is at once lustrous and shadowy, mysterious and magical..the album as a whole, it is no self-indulgent wallow but an exercise in shaping beauty out of despair.”
Alex Goddard – Music Week
“Stunning debut from a composer and lyricist of rare invention and beauty”
Alex Gallacher – Folk Radio UK
“The followers of Beth Gibbons, Joanna Newsom and especially the excellent Daughter will find themselves becoming fans of Gomes after hearing her debut album”
“Completely engulfing and enthralling. The minutes seem to melt away while listening. Candidly moving debut album”
