Dialogues on Music Medicine
“From the Amazon to the world, the music that heals the soul”
With Francesco Pariset (Colombia) Pico Rama, Pietro Pariset, Elisa Gaia (Italy). Moderated by Nicola Cirillo

It is widely known that music and sound inherently possess a therapeutic power, but in recent years a genuine musical genre, known as “music medicine,” has emerged. Originating in South America as a natural development of the “Icaros” (chants sung by shamans during sacred ceremonies with medicinal plants), it has spread worldwide due to growing interest in this spirituality from people of other continents. This phenomenon has allowed an evolution of this ceremonial music, which has integrated with the traditional musics of various cultures it has encountered, adopting different traits and characteristics in various countries, yet maintaining the spirit and intention intact.

We will discuss this with Francesco Pariset, who will bring his experience as a musician with the medicine families of Putumayo, the Amazonian region where he has lived for over ten years, with Pico Rama and Elisa Gaia, Italian artists who have long been engaged in a spiritual development path through music, art, and naturopathy, with Pietro Pariset, a surgeon and facilitator of a meditation technique rooted in holotropic breathing and Rebirthing. The meeting will be moderated by Nicola Cirillo, a publicist journalist who, after years in music criticism, has embraced an artistic journey rooted in music medicine. At the end of the talk, the artists will offer a “music circle”. Hard to call it a concert, given the very nature of the music proposed: it is music to be listened to with an open heart and closed eyes, away from the distractions of the square, cell phones, and chatter. It is music that arises from the silence of those who produce it and reaches the silence of those who listen.
