A concert marking 45 years of the Trutamora Slovenica / Vedun Ensemble
and over 50 years of ethnomusicological research by Mira Omerzel - Mirit, Ph.D.
HARMONIES OF PEACE IN THE WORLD
Tine Omerzel Terlep, Igor Meglič, Robert Pečenko,
artistic leader: Mira Omerzel - Mirit, Ph.D.
With their performances in a trance state of consciousness, the musicians and sound-energy therapists of the Vedun Ensemble bestow upon their listeners the harmonising therapeutic sounds of the moment. They follow in the footsteps of the ancient Veduns who were Slavic priests, healers, and musicians of the past. Their own spontaneous, unrepeatable (channelled) sounds and music are rooted in the melos and musical practices of the ancient Slovenes, of European and Slavic nations, and of different cultures of the world. This ranges from throat singing to transcendent performances which were at one time highly esteemed. Their unique sound yarn weaves folk songs of past eras with unique and almost forgotten musical instruments of different cultures (each performance featuring between 50 and 100 or so). All the musicians are multi-instrumentalists and singers. Their sound fabric, crafted from the jewels of the world’s musical heritage, is strongly harmonising; it expands consciousness and awareness, reaching into the depths of spirit and heart. Vedun concerts are special and are globally rare. They are a unique experience. The content of a concert by the Vedun (formerly Trutamora Slovenica) Ensemble is based on more than 50 years of research into the Slovene and world’s musical and spiritual heritages, carried out by Mira Omerzel - Mirit, Ph.D., who is the global instigator of ethno-archaeo-medical/vibrational musicology. Besides a musical education, the most precious training for contemporary Veduns has been the combination of learning in Mirit’s spiritual-therapeutic Veduna School and travelling across the world, meeting and collaborating with the keepers of musical traditions of different cultures on all continents. The Vedun Ensemble connects art, science, the folk tradition, and the world’s spiritual wisdom. It brings back to ancient music its enchanting, magical, revered, and harmonising tones – from the past and for the future. For peace in the world.
