Tonight we will welcome Archival Song Keeper Peia Luzzi!
Peia, as a song preserver has gathered songs from ancient traditions that span across the globe, from the mountains of Bulgaria to the shores of Ireland, touching upon the wisdom and trials of the Native peoples of North and South America; and preserving the enchantment of medieval chant and Indian Raga. She has travelled extensively to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, labouring faithfully to revive their language, stories and original essence.
