Peia, Ali Ghamsari and Jarrod Kaplan
Ali Ghamsari – fresh in from Iran, and Jarrod Kaplan, played together before Peia joined them. I had chills and goosebumps. They sat on opposite sides of the stage, and it was as they played the air between them. They speak different languages, but with music, spoke the same tongue, with more nuance than speech knows. Again, I am so grateful that Ubud is a hub for such incredible worldwide talent.
Peia, with the voice of international angels, joined them for songs of prayer. Ancient, pulsing and primal her voice carries stories, prayers from our ancestors and myths of the land. She is timeless.
