Free event
Music as Soul Healing
Dialogues on Medicine Music
With Francesco Pariset (Colombia), Pico Rama, Pietro Pariset, Elisa Gaia (Italy). Moderated by Nicola Cirillo

It is widely known that music and sound have a therapeutic power in themselves, but in recent years a true musical genre is emerging, known as “medicine music“: born in South America as a natural development of “Icaros” (the chants sung by shamans during sacred ceremonies with medicinal plants) has spread worldwide thanks to the growing interest in this spirituality by people from other continents as well. The phenomenon has allowed an evolution of this ceremonial music that has integrated traditional music from different cultures it has come into contact with, assuming different features and characteristics in various countries, but preserving its spirit and intention.

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