Song and sound gatherings
In this modern times where people are in need for expression, we organise different gatherings where we connect with our inner selves and others trough sound. In these events we propose a mix of meditation, sound healing, voice liberation exercises and songs from all over the world, under a specific theme that serves as a guide throughout the journey.
More than just singing, we use our voices to express and give freedom to stuck emotions, we embody and built new connections and we discover the power of our voice, creating a place where we allow ourselves to just be.

A world of songs
ProjectA works with different kind of songs and music creations.
We work with medicine, traditional, heart songs and mantras from different cultures and languages. These ones are used in the song gatherings but also in concerts. In these lines MAGU is actively composing new songs, sometimes mixed with poetry or sometimes using new technologies. Here you can hear some of them :
IN THE HEART OF THE CHAKRAS
We also work with studio recorded music, always exploring the possibilities of the voice. In this series of recordings, MAGU has played with the sonorities of the seven chakras -energy centers of our body- with their respective sounds (Inspired by the vedic tradition, bija mantras)
Close your eyes and let yourself be carried away by these sounds that will recharge the energy of your chakras. You can visualize each one of their colors or repeat for yourself the corresponding mantra. Enjoy this sound healing journey !
72 NAMES OF GOD – A MANTRA COLLECTION
The 72 names of God come from the kabbalistic tradition and are very powerful mantras that can transform our reality. MAGU has also recorded this series of mantras for ProjectA.
