I played drums in the clouds at 1858 meters!
I performed in direct conversation with the mountain. I also recorded this experience which I will be releasing as an album.
I started playing drums when I was five year old, and I relate the sound of the drums with my own voice. When I play drums it is a visceral connection with my emotions and feelings. Up there on the top of the mountain I was in conversation with a different world, an expansive world that I had yet to communicate with.
When I decided to create High Vibration, it came into my mind like a freight train. I started to think of what I wanted for my life and what I was missing on my own journey, I wanted to experience something completely different with sound, I wanted to experience it with a group of people, I wanted create an experience that was about more than just sound; about emotion, unity, and shared moments of awe. Creating an extraordinary adventure where the drums become a conduit for a profound conversation with the mountain, and our collective emotions become the heartbeat of our journey. Discovering the magic that happens when we use sound to connect, to inspire and to create a harmonious dialogue with the mountains and each other."
Finally deciding to go for it, I had a small window of time between a european tour and a tour in the USA. The only time possible was now, we needed to make the hike before the seasons changed and the snow came in and made the mountain pass impossible.
It wasn’t easy, we all carried heavy backpacks, each with a pece of drums on his or her shoulders, we were together, step by step hiking in complete silence, discovering the sounds of the mountain and with it accessing the deepest well of our emotions!
We had a musical conversation with the highest peak of Tuscany, it was magic, it was powerful and it was deeply moving. Now it’s time to take this journey and experience around the globe, discovering the sound and deep emotions of different lands!
