Roland & Shashana

A Contemporary Keyboard/Synth and Guitar/Synth Duo Performing Exotic & Traditional Earth-Muslc

July 21, 7:00-10:00 pm



"Free-Life" is a contemporary improvisational musical duo. Roland plays guitar and guitar synth; Shashana plays keyboards and keyboard synth. They have performed together for a number of years and their music is fresh and exciting; their rhythms, exotic and haunting; their sound, unique.

They write their own material, which they classify as Earth-Music; Roland likes to mix the natural sounds of the guitar with the more evocative offerings of the guitar synth creating a special blend of instrumental voicing not usually heard in today's music scene. To this combination, Shashana adds her own world melodies and rhythms that she programs on her keyboard synthesizer.

"Free-Life" creates a very inspiring and comforting sound landscape. The music on their CD "SKYWALKER" for example, gently transports the listener into the higher realms of emotional and spiritual awareness. UtIlizing the latest research and techniques of Sacred Sound Healing, "Free-Life" connects the individual to the deeper parts of the Self and helps journey that Self through energy-filled melodic and rhythmic adventures-African, Indian, Eastern, Native American, Tibetan, Tantric, New Age, and Traditional Western. "Free-Life" music is multi-layered and resonates with the audience on many levels, whether for plain listening, dance and emotional release, meditation, guided imagery, deep recollection, or self-transformation.

The listener is consistently engaged because Roland and Shashana offer a variety of instrumental sounds as they emanate from the synthesizers in a very natural and harmonious fashion. "Free-Life" performs with both taste and discretion and never loses sight of music's elemental beauty and form.
