Matakana’s Hungry Elephant cafe/restaurant is hosting a free concert next month, an outdoor evening with two Auckland based performing groups sharing their music with the local community.

Songs of the Soul draws upon the musical legacy of the late musician-composer and spiritual master Sri Chinmoy, who visited New Zealand on four occasions, met successive Prime Ministers and offered a number of very popular free concerts dedicated to world peace.

The March 9th Saturday evening concert in Matakana will feature the popular father and son duo Monk Party on guitar, flute, percussion, vocals; and the women’s vocal/instrumental bhajan group Mukti Giti.

The concert title reflects the meditative, peaceful nature of the music and the purpose of the concert ‘to offer an inner experience of peace through music’, according to local organizer Jogyata Dallas.

‘In our very cluttered and stressful modern world, meditation has become a mainstream interest and a widespread practice – Songs of the Soul is an interactive event, listeners and performers together co-creating an atmosphere of peaceful, meditative stillness.’

Although admission is free, registration is required for catering purposes and to reserve seating in the outdoor gardens.

Concert goers can register at the Hungry Elephant in person, or leave details and number attending by texting 02040253741.
