I had the privilege of being in a Sound Ritual with Tito La Rosa on my father’s birthday, February 16, 2020. It was a sacred and profound experience that I was happy to experience for the second time in this beautiful round temple at Nidra Wasi. I was there with him 2 years ago. And that evening I was “rocking out” to one of his melodies and he came up to me and invited me up and we danced around the room.
On Sunday, Feb. 23 I will be going to a workshop in his home, “Encuentro con los 9 portales sonoros de la tradicion.” (Meeting with The 9 Sound Portals of Tradition) Gracias! His wife speaks English and I was able to communicate with her to find out how to get to their house. She is going to meet me at the bus stop. Ah, so blessed!
I watched Tito last time and this time set out his instruments. He makes an altar. He arranges a set of stones just so. And every instrument seems to tell him exactly where it wants to be. And when he puts them away, he is so careful and precise about how he folds up the altar clothes and packs everything up. For sure, I am observing a master.
