Can music act as a catalyst for our evolution? Can it midwife us past our comfort zone, into new realms, new possibilities, and new ways of seeing? I say it can. Vocalist and songwriter Masha Tretiakova D’Elphenden writes songs that bridge the heartbreaking tenderness and vulnerability of being Human with the vastness of the universe and consciousness itself. At once an exploration of infinite mystery, and a deep-dive into the rawness of the human heart, Masha’s music dives bravely into suffering and bring us out the other side: into an uplifted, inspired reality in which wonder reigns, allowing us to dance on the surface of life rather than getting pulled down by its gravity. In this unique episode, Masha discusses the trials, losses, and resplendent gifts that inform her music, and plays her songs in between questions.
