Mamalama y Andes Manta, two world (and other-world) music groups join forces in a collaborative, continuous flow of music in the amazing Widow Jane Mine.
Seamlessly weaving together the ancient with the modern in a collaboration between sacred and world music, from the rhythms and hauntingly beautiful melodies of the South American Andes and the rainforest, Native American chants and modern lullabies for melting glaciers and ocean deities, to the spiritual visions and sung prayers articulated in cathedrals, ‘Mamalama Y Andes Manta’ is an uncommon, otherworldly and uplifting experience through music.

Iva Bittová‘s (https://www.bittova.com) music is a blend of rock and East European music which she describes as “my own personal folk music”. Her violin playing mixes different techniques, including playing the strings with various objects and plucking them like a banjo. Her vocal utterances range from traditional singing to chirping, cackling and deep throat noises. She puts her whole body into her performances, drawing on her theatrical skills.

Carrie Bradley-Neves (https://soundcloud.com/carrie-bradley-neves) has been making records, performing, and touring as a singer-songwriter and violinist for more than twenty-five years. Groups she has been part of include Ed’s Redeeming Qualities, 100 Watt Smile, and The Breeders. Her current project is called The Great Auk.

Satan’s Black Acid is a duo featuring writer/musician Cole Heinowitz and painter/musician Will Staples. Their SoundCloud page (https://soundcloud.com/satansblackacid) describes their work as, “Hellish dark sounds from deep in the mountains”.

Most Serene Congress (Chris Funkhouser, David Hirmes, Leonard Nevarez) is an electronic poetry / post-punk improvisation / digital recording project (https://soundcloud.com/mostserenecongress).

George Quasha (http://www.quasha.com/) and Chuck Stein (http://writing.upenn.edu/pennsound/x/Stein-C.php) have been collaborating as poets and performers since the 1970s.

Earlier today my friend and I were in the mine when a group of people came in after us. We were taking some photos and video when a man in the group began singing. We don't know who you are, but this was magical for us, especially with the thunder in the background. We want to thank you!
