New from the road (SacredFire in France, 2015-10-21)

Video newsletter
Bonjour from France!

Over a week ago, we landed in warm & sunny French Riviera. Packed with energy from the release of our new album "Continuum" (the remix songs from Journey to Infinity by davidji & SacredFire), our hearts were brimming with fabulous feedback from listeners all over the world who have been experiencing the new album... We wish to thank you all for supporting our Music Medicine, and we are honored to be touching your hearts with our work.

Recovering from the flood

A few days before we left our home in Canada, we were saddened to hear about the cataclysm that devastated the Cannes area where we were heading... a colossal storm had hit Côte d'Azur. Waters had dangerously risen, taking away 19 lives and damaging many homes, businesses, roads and structures. We arrived to a grieving community; everyone seemed to have been hurt to some level by the storm, and had a story to tell.

The outcome of most conversations has been the hope that the tragedy has helped to raise people`s awareness in regards to their relationship with nature - a theme that is present in SacredFire's music & work. We were touched by the compassion and solidarity of the community... once again, we are reminded of the dance of darkness and light; of the frailty of life on Earth and the power of the Elements  ̶  life in all its mystery.

Exploring Côte d'Azur

Now that the storm has passed and we are settled for a few weeks, we are taking a few days to explore the beauties of the region, before hitting the "record" button for our new project.

... and in our transient apartment in Mandelieu-la-Napoule, we are enjoying creating new music, and rehearsing vocals & guitar for our upcoming concerts at Europa-Park, working with the beautiful Magali Devi of Anahataflow at our ELEMENTALS Yoga week.

Here is a snippet of a rehearsal and improvisation of our song "Healing Flow (remix)", from our latest album "Continuum".

What's next?

In the coming weeks, we intend to visit high-energy locations in the south of France, Germany and Spain to take in the nurturing vibration & capture some sounds for our new recording project. Keep posted for updates!

With love and gratitude,

MJ and Dean
