Given the current water crisis in Sao Paulo and the upcoming Lemanja festival celebrating the Orixás goddess / queen of the Ocean we decided to explore creating a song about the significance of water in all of our lives. We looked at personal stories involving transformational experiences through contact with water, ocean, sea, river, lakes. We also had a discussion about the current Sao Paulo water crisis – why is it happening? what can be done about it? etc.
Words were transcribed, lyrics formed and music belted thunderously out. It was an incredibly passionate workshop!
You can hear it in the music!
