Common Threads Woven through Community
Fremantle based artists Sophie Moleta and Jaya Penelope are set to bring a night of quality performance to the Perth Hills. The Sound Temple set on five acres of Jarrah Forrest is home to the luxurious live performance space ‘The Mandala Room’ and will be host for this intimate night of performance.
The Mandala Room is home to Sophie’s piano and together with Jaya they will in concert weave an evening with threads of song, poetry and piano.
Your soul will be seeded with Jaya’s poetry and Sophie’s music and together they will create a feeling that we are all instruments of love and that the ‘Pollination of Life’ is within us.
The audience will be connected to the power of poetry and will be immersed in a nourishing soundscape as the Sky Goin’ Ladies bring it all together during this not to be missed concert performance.
