SOLITUDE

In SOLITUDE, my first solo concert I wish to invite the audience to the "white room" where I am with the drums. The white room is a symbol of solitude and through my drum compositions, my melodies, I'm questing what colors, emotions, arise in that state. The question I wish to leave with the audience is: What is solitude to you? Do you choose it or does it scare you, and if so why?

Enter this space without expectations,  a white room without masks or shoulds. Lean back and let the beat touch your heart-beat, the simple melodies find your soul. You are alone and you are free. But we're alone together. 

Welcome!

Peace, Maria.

A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; ... if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.
— Schopenhauer 1818

I will share glimpses, more about my process, thoughts, and reflections on the blog in the months to come.

Sweet Like Time at Ås Kulturhus

What is Time?

You can’t put a finger on it, but you can still spend a little of it in the warm & fuzzy sonic lounge Sweet Like Time conjures. Their songs are jazzy, melodic & bittersweet; exploring the magical weave of expectant silence and tonal release. Whether you are taken on a trip far away on the wings of a daydream, or simply mesmerized into zen-like pure being: Sometimes their songs gently remind you that you are, in fact, floating lazily in a sea of mystery – What is Time?

Bass:  Dag Tore Johnsen

Drums/percussion: Maria Bovin deLabbé

Vocal and guitar: Sjur Tobiassen

Womb Dance

Womb Dance

Since ancient times, women have danced to feel their power, heal their pains, support each other through childbirth and other rites of passage, and connect with the earth, the divine spirit in all things.

I´ll be drumming at this event that happens online the 15th of March. Sama Morningstar and Sophia Hoffer Perkins, AKA Sophia Wise One, will be our guides in this healing dance journey focused on recentering us in our wombs, awakening our womb power, and nourishing our wild feminine spirits.  

Now as many women struggle with living lives so disconnected from the rhythms of nature, our bodies, our spirits, it is deeply nourishing to come together and dance our way back to center.

To join in, please join the LunaWave Womb Awakening Grove.
