We would like to offer something a little different to the Pagan community with this
Bardic Circle. We are actually going to take you to the performance!
Tribe is a band that over the years has connected together the talents of over 60 musicians, in Canberra and also from all over the planet via the Internet. This incarnation of Tribe that you will see in the video consists of the local Canberra musician members and some Aboriginal Dancers.
The piece of music is a ritualised Shamanic piece, with a Sanskrit chant Om Namaha Shiva overlaying a variety of musical passages of one theme.
It is all constructed around the rhythmic strumming of the chord E minor, with a following strike of a 12th fret
harmonic, creating a hypnotic entrancing vibration.
This was the opening sequence of the concert.
Natalia's soaring vocal and its moments of intense concentrated energy, focus all the musicians to a common goal, centredness of purpose. This was one of the most powerful concert that I [ David Pendragon] have ever been involved in, the absolute connection between all of the performers was astounding, more so because we never got to do a rehearsal! The entire concert was a 'free form' event where everybody just did their thing when it 'felt' right to do it.
The magical energy of this night, I believe, comes across in this video. It will be a night that remains with us for ever.
So we invite you to share with us that moment here at the Bardic Circle. We welcome you to this Sacred Space. As we say as our 'catch cry' "May we meet you in the Music"
[ This is the only existing edited footage of this beautiful concert by Tribe in 2001. The concert was held at a Canberra Theatre and this video was shot by local film students as part of their year final exams.
The natural lighting, while it initially appears to be a little 'under lit' has its own charm and is an accurate representation of the real environment. ]
