MICHAEL DEMARIA

Musically, Michael is an award winning composer and Grammy nominated recording artist who from the age of 7 has been keenly interested in how sound can induce deep states of relaxation, altered states of consciousness and healing. He is an avid student of world music exploring and playing indigenous percussion and aerophones from the Native American Flute and African Djembe to the Australian Didgeridoo. He also plays piano and a wide array of keyboards and synthesizers. He has been the featured musician for renowned poets Robert Bly and David Whyte and has played with Grammy winning and internationally known artists such as Mary Youngblood, Bill Miller, David Darling, Carlos Nakai, as well as Coyote Oldman, Peter Phippen, Jeff Ball and Ash Dargan. He has composed 3 CD’s of original music, two in the Healing Sound Project Series - The River (2003) and Ocean (2009) as well as the award winning soundtrack, Siyotanka (2009).
