The fourth interview Jeralyn did in the Sacred Science of Sound online summit was with Rhiannon.

Rhiannon is a vocal artist with a vision of music as a vehicle for innovation, healing, transformation, and social change. From her stellar collaborations with the all-women’s jazz ensemble Alive! to a cappella ensemble SoVoSo’ to Bobby McFerrin and Voicestra, Rhiannon has paved a unique path as an independent artist. In recent years she has continued to refine her improvisation work by performing in the a cappella trio WeBe3 with Joey Blake and David Worm, both 35-year members of Voicestra.

I could feel Rhiannon’s passion for music overflowing through her voice and words. She described music as an entity, as an energy of sound, a real being with whom we can communicate. I really loved this — music as a real being with whom we can communicate.

Jeralyn added that music an help us bring to the surface those emotions that are buried deep down. By bringing them to the surface, we become aware of them, we experience them, and in experiencing we can release them.

She also speaks of the importance of improvisation in daily life, of community living, of caring for each other, and of finding our true voice and vibration.
