KaliSara and RevKess decided to try something a little different with this weekend’s edition of PMP. A live, interactive interview with their guest Celia. In this interactive interview the listeners and fans got to help with asking the questions! Though no one braved the lines and called in with their questions, the hosts did receive several questions and suggestions on where to go with the show. To all those who added to the fun, thank you!
Two years and one month ago Celia visited with RevKess on Musica Pagani. That show aired
lived on 10 July 2012. They first connected face to face at her 2012 concert in Omaha, NE at the First Unitarian Church. RevKess reviewed that concert on the Pagan Weekly News on 5 March 2012.
Earlier this summer Celia released the digital version of her new album Shaman Journey, soon to be available on CD through CDBaby. She has toured the new release across the country with 30 concerts in 60 days. Quite the ambitious tour! She’s back home in Prescott, AZ with her partner Charlie who also went on tour with her. The album is the first in a series of Sound Spirals that Celia has been working, recording her live concerts and taking the best cuts of her newer meditative and energetic pieces to create collections of healing and inspiring music for the listening audience. These Sound Spirals came about as a response to the comments from fans that Celia’s music has taken them on a journey, a seeing, or other voyage of inspiration as well as in response to the requests for music that can be used in meditation, reiki, or other spiritual practices.
Celia spoke in depth about her music, her inspirations, her life, and her love. You’ll have to tune into the archive of the show (click the show logo above) to hear about why she does what she does.
Celia’s Golden Rule: Do unto others as others would have you do unto them.
Celia paraphrased singer and songwriter Woody Guthrie during the show, “It’s not how good a song is, it’s how much good a song does.” The full quote from Guthrie reads:
“I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing.Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim too ugly or too this or too that. Songs that run you down or poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or hard traveling.
I am out to fight those songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood. I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built.
I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work.”
