is a sacred improvisational singing group consisting of Valeriana Claff, Katja
Esser, Ana Moffett and Barnet Weiss. In August of 2001 the 4 members came from
4 different states, from Northern Maine all the way to New York City, to meet
at the Widow Jane Mine in New York State, to sing from dusk till dawn.
Something powerful transpired that began to shape our drumming, singing and
even our lives. Since the music is improvisational we cannot do it again and we
love to share what came through us in the belly of the earth.
On this page you find a couple of powerful
music samples that are technically inadequate to be put on a CD but still a
must hear. On this second page you can hear samples of our CD ‘Songjourneys’
that is available through this website. Most of the drum pieces did technically
not work in the way we recorded it and could not be used in our CD. A second
recording called ‘Prayers’ will be released some time in the spring. Our hope
is that with our CD sales and your feedback we can raise the funds to return to
the mine for a high level recording.
