Eve "Eva Lorca" Costarelli has been teaching flamenco, tap and yoga in the Boston community for the past eighteen years. She was first introduced to flamenco by Ramon de los Reyes and then went on to both perform and teach in his company. Through her exploration of flamenco technique and its connection to the yoga body, her dancing personifies the power and stillness held within the music of Spanish gypsies.
Antonio "Tiriti" Tran has been studying flamenco guitar intensively for the last three years, traveling to Spain each year to hone his technique and accompaniment skills. While in Spain, he performed numerous times, which earned him an honorary membership with the Pena Flamena de Alhaurina. In 2010, he won third place in the ForoFlamenco's International Composition Challenge with his composition, "Nos Miran."
Judith Stone sings and plays the music she has written inspired by nature!
MFSO hopes to draw together US military families and veterans in a safe place with a variety of healers. This would be a long weekend, in a natural setting. Last year it was organized by Lakota members of our organization who put together artists, musicians, Elders, physicians. We no longer have the traditions of the indigenous people to deal with the long drawn out suffering of war, but as an evolving culture do have more and more ways to acknowledge and transform the trauma of those who put themselves in harm's way over the last few centuries of almost non stop war. Families of soldiers carry a huge weight of fear, anxiety and guilt for these wars and for the effect of war upon their loved ones. The healing retreat open to families and veterans would be a step towards creating healing for an entire nation mired in militarism.
