The Neshama Alma Band
acoustic/trance/experimental/mantra strumming




The Neshama Alma Band is a San Francisco-based collaboration of composer Ernesto Diaz-Infante and video-artist/flutist Marjorie Sturm. Their latest work, "The Sun Heals Life," is an experiential performance that provokes private reflection in a public space around retribution, forgiveness, and war. On a bajo sexto guitar, Diaz-Infante performs trance, mantra-strumming inspired by Native American and other rhythms. The minimalist video accompaniment focuses the mind to the hypnotic soundscape, breeding a personal and collective visualization to the current dilemmas. This performance is best absorbed by a ruminative participant who will engage with the Band of spirits who are being conjured for guidance.

  "But what strikes me most...is it's atmosphere. There is some strange kind of mystic here. And if the secret of this mystic is the working together...I hope they will continue to do so." -- Dolf Mulder, Vital Weekly
