Curawaka :: Dreamtime Tour :: 30 September 2023 @Dominicuskerk Amsterdam
What a honor and pleasure to organize and hold space again for the ceremonial concert of Curawaka! This year not only one but TWO evenings as we are slowly stepping into autumn season to harvest the fruits of our dreams.
It was in the midst of COVID that Curawaka played in Amsterdam for only 40 people (due to the regulations) in the immense Dominicuskerk and one year later at our HeartFire CampOut in pristine nature. Their medicine music invites you to connect with your authentic self, remembering that we are one with nature and that singing, praying and dancing are the gateways to a life of harmony, joy, connection and love.
May the sacred ceremonial music and the deeply touching prayers open your heart and lift your spirit high!
Support Opening by Maité la Muse.
Doors Open: 18.30

Curawaka is a contribution to the great shift we are living through in these times. It is our response to the deep calling to share the real and the wild, the true and good and sacred, the light and the hope. It is a commitment to do our part on this mysterious life journey – do the best we can to create a better world. We believe in the potential of each human beings to sprout his or her sacred purpose and grow strong and wild and free. We believe in the intelligence and powers of nature, and the coming of a new dawn. A sunrise in the story of humanity, and a time of blossoming for the Earth and all her children. This is our prayer, the sacred world rising, and we sharing the hope that we will overcome the storm that is upon us, and unite again as one sacred family.
We share chants and tunes from all over the world, songs that was crafted from our own heart as well as songs that somehow ended up in our hearts. Our music is an ode to the wild spirit, a tribute to Mother Earth and a loveletter to life itself. We are deeply inspired by native traditions and have been blessed to learn with and from various indigenous peoples around the world. In fact, each member of Curawaka has spent extensive time living and studying with different tribes of in different parts of the world We are in constant tribute to all indigenous peoples everywhere for their ancestral cultures, their traditions and knowledge, and their eternal mission to protect the sacred balance of life.
For us it is a joy and a blessing to share our music with a live audience, to share the medicine frequencies with a wider public and connect to the mysteries of Spirit through music and dance. We always carry our prayers with us on stage, seeking to lift the energy and connect again and again with the divine which surrounds and lives in us all at all times.

Support Opening By Maité la Muse
Trained in classical piano at the age of five, Maité has since developed an impressive repertoire of original, multi-instrumental, devotional music. She draws inspiration from the natural elements, world music, ceremony, and her own personal journey of healing. Maité has participated in many concerts and festivals, sharing her music across countries and cities in Europe and North America. With her hypnotic voice and powerful lyrics, she captures a growing international audience of spiritual seekers and practitioners. Maité is celebrated for her ability to merge genres, seamlessly weaving etheric melodies and words together for listeners to resonate deeply with. Her music is likened to Rising Appalachia, Nessi Gomes, and Carrie Tree.
Maité’s musical expression is strongly influenced by her studies in indigenous wisdom, master plant teachers, and world travels. As a writer and composer, Maité draws on her multi-ethnic background to write songs using a variety of languages, cultures, and styles.
When she is not performing or composing music, Maité enjoys traveling, learning new instruments and styles, creating interactive experiences for vocal exploration, and spending time in nature. She also works as a mentor for women to develop the unique medicine and power of their voices to express themselves fully and authentically.
High Chai Tea House
High Chai Teahouse is a mobile teahouse that you will encounter at all our HeartFire concerts. Come home from your trip to the concert and get to meet old and new acquaintances in this dreamy Victorian ambiance. At the bar you can order the tastiest quality products from the Chai Angels.
The hand-brewed Chai Tea has grown famous, and you can only get it here. You will also find yogi tea, fresh mint, ginger and lemon tea. Not to mention all the sweet treats…. Both raw vegan and home-baked cakes, brownies and refreshing authentic drinks.
This bohemian atmosphere bar was designed by Ilona Dorgelo. The High Chai once started when Ilona made cake and chai for friends with a heartbreak. With the theater school and three-star restaurant De Librije as a background, this accidentally grew into a serious concept at our HeartFire concerts.
